Cate delivers engaging and challenging speeches to parents with kids 6th grade to college age.
Her goal is to challenge parents to be involved in their children’s education, to provide tools and guidance that will enable every motivated and passionate student to identify a clear purpose for their lives and aspire to reach their maximum potential.
Born and raised in Kenya, Cate immigrated to the USA in the early 2000’s as a student. In the USA Cate saw opportunities that would make her dreams come true – but she had no mentors or people to look up to. She used her savvy to quickly learn the dynamics of the education system and acquired mastery in navigating through the system to eventually succeed.
Cate put herself through college, graduated at the Houston Community College – with an Associate’s degree in Business Administration. She pursued a four year degree at Houston Baptist University where she graduated with a double major Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Business and Management and later obtained a Master’s degree in Management with concentration in Human Resources at the University of Houston-Victoria. Cate is the first woman in her family to graduate from college. She is now a successful HR-IT Project Manager and has 9yrs experience in the field.
Cate’s journey has not been smooth – she had to overcome many obstacles as a young immigrant learning to live in a foreign land. Cate believes that we learn from each other by sharing our stories and experiences to foster growth. Her story inspires many who want to pull themselves up by hard work and sheer will to do better for themselves and generations to come. She equips then challenges parents together with students to hold each other accountable to ensure education and career success.
