Frequently wandering across the lines of industry and academia, start-ups and corporate innovation groups, Kate is both the proud daughter of three generations of machinists and and the holder of a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University. She is particularly passionate about the ways manufacturing technologies can support and even drive innovation in medical technology. Outside of work, Kate has taught martial arts in a special needs children's sports program for over a decade, is an avid sci fi reader, and is the world's nerdiest mom to two budding engineers (aka her sons) growing up in the heart of Silicon Valley.
