When not task-mastering in the office, Kate can be found outdoors in northern Michigan, enjoying the beauty of the Au Sable River and majestic pines. Kate will go anywhere on a kayak, having recently traded in the power of a boat for the power of her biceps! Not one to limit her outdoor fun to summer sports, Kate tears up the snowmobile trails on her ultracool Arctic Cat in the winters.
Kate’s cosmopolitan vibe was no doubt cultivated while spending her teenage years in the Netherlands and traveling around Europe followed by a number of years in Ann Arbor. Her world experiences translate to her love for a collaborative and team-oriented approach to working with the staff and clients of AFL. Kate is a workhorse who never hesitates to stay late and come in early to get the job done. She is the model of organization for the firm and is always looking for new ways to improve the client experience. Not to be outdone in the firm baking wars, Kate makes a mean pumpkin cranberry bread, while hanging out at home with her hockey husband and her adorable cat, Miss Kitty.
