Kate grew up in the northwest suburbs of Chicago and attended the University of Iowa graduating with a B.B.A. in marketing. She moved to CB in 2008 looking to explore her passion for the mountains and fell in love with the unique small town community. Kate joined the team in 2013. Her extended knowledge of sales and marketing, accounting background, and focus on client satisfaction made her the ideal candidate to “steer the ship.” Kate and Ben make the perfect team; Ben with his big ideas and creativity drives the artistic perfection behind the finished product while Kate manages the efficiencies of getting to that finished product through her clear vision, attention to detail and organized plan. Together, they feel both fortunate and humbled to help others share in their dreams of making this magical place a home. Kate can be found skiing with her beautiful daughter Avery, hiking with the family, mountain biking, water skiing, or practicing yoga. If you catch her during football season, you’ll find her cheering on her favorite team – the Chicago Bears!
