After launching her site, Richmondmom.com, Kate often received requests like “how did you do it?” and “how does social media work?” and “how do I build a brand?” so she created this site to help other women do just that.
Wait. . I just realized I was typing this about myself in third person. . . this is funky. Ok, this is just me talking about me. Here’s me, just talking about me (if you are really interested):
Family: youngest of four, world’s most hard-working mom (my mom, that is), great husband, three amazing chilluns
Upbringing: grew up in Bradford, PA, a blue-collar town in the mountains, home of the Zippo lighter and people who wear ski parkas 9 months out of the year. It’s cold!
Loves: literature, good red wine, particularly malbec, people (yes I’m a people person dammit, I won’t lie), laughter, the river, waterskiing, the feeling that I have after running (but not during), massages, pedicures, and any activity that involves someone rubbing my feet (I know it’s weird). Technology has become a big love of mine, my iPhone and ipad are never far away.
Inspiration: my parents, who worked so hard; the memory of my father, who died when I was fifteen, and always told me I was a really smart kid, my kids who think it’s cool to see Richmondmom.com out in the world, and great writers all over the world whose skills I beg the writing gods to shower me with someday.
