Episode #39 Summary:
Kate has worked several years in the field of television. She began as a correspondent for Burly Bear Network, a college cable company focused on reality-based TV, and traveled all over campuses in America meeting young adults and exploring student life. She moved on to the world of alternative sports such as snowboarding and mountain biking for the Outdoor Life Network, Oxygen, Fox Sports NET, TNT, and TNN. Kate is well experienced off the camera as well. She was a producer for ABC's the View and for VH-1.
In 2006, things would dramatically change for Kate after being diagnosed with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis.
A video producer by trade, Kate produced a series of videos to showcase her first year with MS and launched them in 2009 on Katescounterpane.com. A counterpane is a patchwork quilt created from a variety of fabrics which, when sewn together, create warmth and beauty as a whole. Her emotional honesty struck a chord and the project gained wide viewership in the MS community, especially among the newly diagnosed.
What became clear to Kate through her own experience was that people need a way to connect each other not only via sharing the daily experience of illness (the clinical), but by sharing the emotions behind the illness (the psychological). Mycounterpane.com started with MS, but as the site gained traction, other communities were born.
Kate is a warrior soul, who sees possibility in all of life's obstacles, presenting you the chance to capture new and exciting moments that lie ahead, despite the challenges one might be facing.
