Hi I'm Kate

I'm a physical therapist, a social dancer, a lover a science, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a native Arizonan with Southern roots, so I claim both Arizona and East Tennessee as "home". Though I'm a single professional, I don't let life or opportunities to serve others take a back seat. I love learning and teaching - so much so, while in school to become an Athletic Trainer and later a Physical Therapist, I jumped at opportunities to learn fine-art photography, ballroom dancing / Lindy Hop swing, piano, fly fishing, crocheting, principles of engineering, botany, astronomy, Hunt-seat equestrian eventing, and I actively seek for opportunities to learn something new!

Why I am a Mormon

I became converted to the restored gospel of Jesus Christ over three years, beginning when I was 18 years old as a freshman in college. Leading up to that time, I knew God existed, but I didn't know with a surety that He knew me as an individual and what He expected of me. I had made some poor decisions and became resolved that there truly had to be more to life than what I was seeing. I read, prayed and experimented with what I read in the Book of Mormon and the Bible together, and as I did so, I gradually felt the listless parts of me shed away. A definitive peace came into my life as I began to recognize myself as a literal daughter of a loving Heavenly Father whose soul was bought with a price by the living Savior, Jesus Christ, through his Atoning sacrifice. I also developed a living testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ through latter-day prophets, Heavenly Father's plan for his children to return to him, and the eternal nature of families for which I am truly grateful for.

How I live my faith

One of the greatest lessons my parents taught me growing up was that of service - to do for others what they could not do for themselves, and what it is to fill a need. I'm not particularly eloquent, but I have two hands and a love of people that allows me to demonstrate my faith and commitment to our Heavenly Father and the Savior. I seek out opportunities to volunteer, be it organized or just helping a neighbor I see along my way. At church, I assist our women's service organization in helping each of the women in and out of our congregation with serving each other to provide physical/emotional relief and spiritual upliftment, and helping them to be the Savior's hands for others.
