Kate is the owner of Bodega Boutique in downtown Dartmouth, Co-founder of the Dartmouth Young Professionals and the Dartmouth Carousel Initiative, a photographer, animal lover and a creative mind that dabbles in as many things as she can find that make her happy. She began her journey with meditation during her undergrad when she was first introduced to the book ‘The Art of Loving” by Erich Fromm. Fromm taught her that “Love isn’t something natural. Rather it requires discipline, concentration, patience, faith, and the overcoming of narcissism. It isn’t a feeling, it is a practice.” She works towards her practice of love daily through service to her community and others and meditate on this practice through self expression and creative pursuits. She hopes to find in her float practice a time for self love. For taking care of her body, mind, and soul in one place so that she can in turn be able to give more to others including sharing the joy that comes with that first Float experience.
