Kate was born in Grand Haven, Michigan, and lived there until she moved to Bozeman as a teenager. Before joining Winegardner’s, she worked in retail, the restaurant business and also spent 10 years in pharmacy. Kate’s interest in wine began while working in the restaurant business, since wine knowledge is such an important aspect of fine dining. Working at Winegardner’s is her first position with a distributor. She has yet to find a favorite wine, however, she’s more of a beer gal.
In her spare time, Kate likes to spend time with the people she loves doing the things they love - going to concerts, eating good food, skiing, snowboarding, and traveling. You know, all the best things! And, if you ask her, she’ll tell you she’s the funniest person she knows.
