As a member of WIT’s faculty since 2011, Kate has delighted in teaching all levels of students the principles of improv – support, agreement, listening, and exploration.
Kate is passionate about helping students find their sense of self-confidence, rediscover their ability to play, and take the skills they learn in the classroom into their daily lives or onto the stage. She also thinks it’s cool as heck to play games and laugh with other funny folks LIKE IT’S HER JOB.
“Kate is a star! Hilarious and confident.”
“Kate is fantastic at providing targeted feedback. She both went above and beyond to make this class a success.”
“Kate gave lots of constructive feedback and created an awesome atmosphere. By far the best class/ instructor I’ve had at WIT.”
