Speaking, Events, and Appearances

Invite Kate to speak to your group

I am an introvert who’s been observing and processing the world through the written word since middle school—and I adore sharing what I’ve learned! I’ve been presenting to churches, medical students, and health professionals for two decades, and I’m thrilled to be in a position to add writing- and reading-related events to the list.

Writing life, books, music, parenthood, disability, or (if it’s of interest) all things Catholic—whatever your area of interest, I’d love to connect. The beauty of the post-COVID world is that we all are more familiar with online video conferencing, so if in-person isn’t logistically or economically feasible, there’s always Zoom!

Comments from audiences:

“This presentation gave such positive insight into being an advocate for the disability community as well as being a parent. I learned a lot about how to be an advocate for the family and gained insight on some struggles.”

Loved hearing about the realities of life with a child who has special health care needs – both the positives AND the negatives! The PowerPoint was light, which made listening and engaging with Kate effortless. Great presentation.”

“She gave us great insights into the hurdles she’s had to jump in the medical and school settings. She gave us a message of hope and empowerment in that we can be the change we want to see in these systems.”
