Kate is currently an Innovation fellow and Product Manager at the EdLab. Kate's focus is on "edupreneurship" and ways to cultivate development in the edtech field. Kate also helped Pundit to come-alive here at Teachers College. Pundit is a resource for helping students to search for their courses based on their background and interests.
Kate is also an EdLab "evangelist" and enjoys spreading the word about the lab's work at NYC-based edtech events, meetups and demos! Kate is also a part of the team that brings you the Teachers College Record, which is the journal of scholarship in education... for over 100 years!
Prior to the EdLab, Kate worked in Public Relations, Marketing, Business Development and Product Development for the fragrance and package design industries. She also holds certification in both Urban Permaculture Design and Reflexology.
Kate's photography project, www.brooklynorbust.com, which was created using only an iPhone, was turned-into a book. This book was available exclusively at MoMA Design & Books here in NYC.
Kate graduated from the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona, with a BFA in 2-D Studio Art/Arts Education and a minor in psychology. Kate spent a semester teaching photography in a Tucson-area high school where she learned the art of thinking on your feet, making the most of ALL available resources and the value of learning on the fly.
