Kate has lived 18 of her 20 years in the United States. She attended Shaker Heights High School in Cleveland, Ohio and studied German, Fine Arts, Chemistry, Biology, European History, English, Maths and Theory of Knowledge. On completion, she received an International Baccalaureate Diploma.
Her interests now are in fine arts, science, history and photography. Her sporting interests are speed skiing, swimming and basketball. She is currently in her second year of a Bachelor of Science.
Kate relocated to Tasmania for her university years to broaden her horizons. This provides an opportunity to spend time with her mother’s family. Her grandmother and great aunts (then known as the Waugh sisters) attended Fahan School soon after its establishment which makes her time at Fahan even more special.
