Education is my second - and much loved - career. Prior to that, I wrote and produced primarily documentary films for more than thirty years. My work, written in my maiden name - Kate Youngdahl, has appeared on PBS, History, National Geographic, Showtime, Discovery and many more. Besides teaching, my toughest job was my first: five years producing sports at ESPN in the early 1980's.

I am a passionate reader, writer and collector of stories in all forms.

I live on a farm in Granville where my husband Roger and I raise cows and chickens. Both of my sons, Jack and Bob, graduated from Harwood.
