Hi, I’m Kate. I’m a mom, writer, and teacher. I have set four goals for my life:

  1. live simply
  2. maximize health and minimize stress
  3. balance financial security with control over my time
  4. experience as much as possible of what the world has to offer

In pursuit of these goals, I recently left one full-time paid job for two full-time unpaid jobs: stay-at-home-mom and PhD student. I’m lucky enough to do this thanks to my husband (the bread/bacon supplier) and my mom (nanny extraordinaire). We all live in Grand Forks, North Dakota.
