She graduated from St Francis Xavier University in 2012 where she became interested in work with vulnerable populations after partaking in service-learning initiatives in prisons throughout the region. Upon graduation, she travelled to Accra, Ghana to work with children who presented with a variety of behavioural issues. In 2014, Kate decided to pursue her Masters in Experimental Psychology at UNB.
