She's very much a go-with-the-flow person, likes to keep things loose and open, because she doesn't like to be pinned down to specific duties at specific times. She'll give you her opinion frankly, but won't try to dictate how you should think or live your life. Conversely, she doesn't intend to let you tell her how she should think or live her life.
Associations: None, at the moment.
Backstory: Born in Asheville North Carolina in 1978, Kate is the oldest of five children, part of a loud, boisterous, noisy, loving family. Ran track in high school, graduated as valedictorian. Moved to Bremerston to attend the university. Met up with Sofia Marchand on the first day of college, and they became best friends. Graduated cum laude, and worked in the main library and at The Mudhouse, a popular coffeeshop near the university campus, before working at the museum as a docent. She and Sofia decided to open a bookstore they called The Well-Fed Head, selling both new and used books, located in an old refurbished mercantile store. They opened five years ago. It was rough for the first year, then slowly business picked up as other businesses moved into the older area, which began an economic upswing. Every Wednesday, Kate holds a reading circle in one of the back rooms, and it's usually lively. Kate's had one serious relationship, just after college, and has had a handful of short-lived others just for fun. She's not had a relationship for nearly a year and a half, and while she'd like to meet someone, there's no rush--she knows it will happen when it happens. She lives in an apartment above the bookstore.
