Kate is the Director of Human Resources and Genetic Genealogist. She is a full-time pastor, wife, and mother. She is not an adoptee or NPE, but her generous spirit and talent for interpreting DNA started her down the path of helping others identify their stories. She began by helping a cousin, then a friend, then a friend of a friend, and it snowballed from there.
She volunteers to do Search Angel work out of love for others, and a desire to bring healing and wholeness to them. She loves learning about different places and cultures, and she feels that through this process, she becomes a part of each person’s family who blesses her with the opportunity to become part of their story.
Kate is not only compassionate and caring she has a wonderful sense of humor. In her free time, she enjoys gardening, canning, and DIY projects. She lives with her husband, Preston, her Weimaraner Lucy, and her Roomba, Rosie. Kate was a presenter for DNAngels at 2023 Untangling Our Roots Summit in Louisville, KY, and an exhibitor at the 2023 National Genealogical Society conference in Richmond, VA.
