Prior to attending Loyola University New Orleans College of Law, Kate taught Spanish at Delgado Community College and worked as a reporter and producer at 89.9 WWNO New Orleans Public Radio where she reported on the Latino immigrant community in New Orleans. While she loved the work, her desire to engage more directly with immigrant justice led her to enroll in law school. During law school, Kate interned at Sin Fronteras in Mexico City and Catholic Charities Archdiocese of New Orleans. She received Gillis Long internship grants to work at the New Orleans Workers’ Center for Racial Justice and the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services in San Antonio, Texas. Kate was also a student practitioner with the Immigration Law Section of the Stuart H. Smith Law Clinic and Center for Social Justice. Kate is placed with the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES) Family Detention program in San Antonio, Texas, where she represents detained mothers and children seeking asylum and facing expedited removal proceedings.
