Cate grew up in Benton, KY where she danced competitively for 12 years. She continued dancing through college and graduated from the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!) in 2018 with a B.A. in dance and a minor in exercise science. During her collegiate years, Cate found her love for yoga and barre fitness.
After graduation, Cate received her 200 hour Yoga Alliance teaching certification from Asheville Yoga Center and returned to KY to teach yoga and “boga” (barre and yoga) at a local studio. Cate also attended an additional 50 hour Yoga Alliance training in England under Birmingham Royal Ballet’s former principal ballerina, Ambra Vallo, and the Dutches of Sandwiches, Julie Montague.
Cate currently lives with her husband in Brevard, where they share a passion for the outdoors and wellness through hiking, mountain biking, gardening, and cooking
