Kate also received a diploma in Broadcast Journalism from Fanshawe College, where she won the Bayshore Broadcasting Corporation Newscaster of the Year Award.
In 2014, Kate began her career in journalism as an autocue operator at CTV Atlantic in Halifax. She quickly took on other roles in the newsroom, including production assistant and digital content editor.
