Prior to completing the Professional Pastry program at the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Kate spent a decade working as an aircraft mechanic for the United States Air Force. Kate¹s military training was a great asset when she decided to explore a new role in the food and restaurant industry. Enrolling at the University of New Hampshire, she received her Bachelors of Science in Nutrition and began to pursue her longtime passion into the world of pastry. She landed a position as Assistant Pastry Chef in the kitchen at the popular Italian restaurant, Tosca, in Hingham, Massachusetts. Here, she assisted in creating Tosca's "made from scratch" dessert menu as well the menu at their sister restaurant, Caffe Tosca. Today, Kate feels that she found that perfect life balance she has been looking for and is enjoying both cooking and teaching others here at Stonewall Kitchen's Cooking School.
