Director of Growth, Florida, Romero Academy Network
Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone. We find it with another.
- Thomas Merton
Kate serves as the director of growth, Florida. In her role, she explores opportunities for expansion of Romero Academy schools in Florida under the leadership of Emily Gilbride, executive director of the Romero Academy Network. Before stepping into her current role, Kate had established a 20-year career in post-secondary education as an English and writing professor and academic dean. Working at a private Christian university in West Palm Beach for over a decade confirmed her need to integrate her Catholic faith into her professional life and to serve the needs of others in the educational space. Kate holds a B.A. in german language and literature from Barnard College, an M.A. in medieval studies from Western Michigan University, and an M.A. in linguistics from the University of South Carolina. Most recently, Kate earned her Doctor of Arts in English Pedagogy from Murray State University, where the focus of her capstone project was a teleological defense of Christian literary criticism. A resident of Jupiter, FL, Kate enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband, Pedro, and her three sons, Salvador, Javier, and Alejandro, and reading when there is rare quiet.
