She received national recognition in high school for bass and singing as a Silver Winner through the National YoungArts Program. She is a recipient of four Downbeat Magazine Student Music Awards, a double invitee to the Brubeck Summer Jazz Colony, and bassist in the Grammy Jazz Ensemble. In 2009, she was selected as a Presidential Scholar of the Arts, which included a White House visit.

Kate has been featured at the Ringling International Arts Festival in Sarasota, FL and at the University of Vermont as part of the Lane Series. She has been heard many times on radio and seen on TV including WBGO in NY and KATU's AM Northwest. In 2010 she participated in the National Arts Policy Roundtable in Sundance UT, where she joined Kerry Washington and Bob Balaban speaking to government representatives about the importance of arts advocacy. Kate recently spoke and performed at TEDx Portland. ASCAP selected Kate to attend the prestigious 2012 ASCAP Foundation Paul Cunningham writing workshop, and she emerged as the recipient of the Robert Allen award for her original song, “Movie”.
