She loves dining throughout the Finger Lakes and touring the Finger Lakes Wine Trail with friends. In the summer she enjoys boating on Cayuga Lake, evenings at Ithaca Yacht Club, and golfing at the local Ranic Golf Club. Once the snow falls, her family hits the ski slopes. Year-round Kate can be found hiking the local trails all over Ithaca. Kate knows that this area has something to offer at any time of year and she strives to make the most of it. Growing up and raising her family here makes it all the more rewarding for her to help her clients plant roots in this area.

Born and raised in Ithaca, I grew up in the bustling restaurant industry, learning at a young age the ability to serve and take care of guests’ needs. My passion for the hospitality industry led me to pursue a Hotel, Restaurant & Institutional Management degree from the University of Delaware. I excelled in the Sales and Marketing aspects of the hotel business which has led to a long and successful career as a Director of Sales and Marketing. I am currently an accomplished sales professional as the Ithaca Area Director of Sales for Baywood Hotels; The Canopy, Hampton Inn, and Fairfield Inn. That same passion that motivates me to work tirelessly to “take care” of my guests and clients is what sparked my interest in the real estate industry. Whether you need short-term housing or your forever home I am your local housing champion.
I have spent most of my life in Ithaca and Tompkins County and I have a deep knowledge and understanding of the area and all the intricate neighborhoods. I have served on many local boards and committees in pursuit of giving back to our dynamic community. This includes my many years of service on the Tompkins County Chamber of Commerce board of which I am currently the board chair. When I am not working or contributing to this great community through my board work you will find me spending time with my wonderful family and friends.
Buying or selling a home is a major milestone. I would love the opportunity to be a part of that by helping you market and sell your home with success or find you your perfect home. I will utilize the skills that I have perfected over the years to deliver the best-personalized service to my clients; exceptional customer service, organization, dedication, dependability, and resourcefulness.
