Why did you decide to shine the spotlight on this Fangirl?
Kate’s been a geek all her life, but is only recently learning to love letting her geek flag fly. She has incredibly varied interests and isn’t shy about sharing her enthusiasm with kindred spirits. Though currently an executive assistant, Kate’s a trained math teacher who works to actively encourage young women in STEM. She’s even envisioned a comic book series that presents numbers as super heroes of a sort, personifying the science and making it accessible through pop culture. She’s all around amazing!
