Kate grew up in Amherst, N.Y. and returned to her hometown after completing her bachelor's and master's degrees in clarinet performance at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, Mass.
She has held administrative roles supporting sales and marketing and has managed a small office. Kate decided to go back to school for her MBA to better position herself to pursue a leadership role as she advances her career.
Being from the Buffalo area and having many connections to this community, UB made sense as her choice for an MBA program because of its reputation and its proximity to home. At the UB School of Management, Kate has nurtured her desire to understand the world through data, and is looking forward to further developing her management and leadership skills during her second year in the program.
