Kate is a Senior Technical Product Manager at Unity Technologies in the Digital Twins division. She brings over a decade of construction experience to current AEC (architecture, engineering and construction) products such as VisualLive and Reflect Review and is working to bring a number of in-development products to market. Prior to moving to software development in 2021, Kate worked as a Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) Manager involved in all stages of construction, from pursuit through to close-out.

Kate is passionate about encouraging and assisting women in the construction industry, particularly in the technological side which, as with the industry as a whole, is traditionally male-dominated. In the past few years, Kate has mentored numerous BCIT design students along with high school students through her involvement with the Green Bricks organization. She has also presented on VDC topics at Autodesk University, WISE (Women in Science and Engineering), BuildEX, for BIMbc and at numerous LCI (Lean Construction Institute) conferences.

Kate has been a member of Canadian Construction Women since 2011 and held the position of Director of Programs from 2014 to 2019 before moving into the Vice President role. She became President of the organization in 2021.
