Kate Stover Proud to be fourth-generation Tulare County born and raised, Kate is driven by deep local roots and a passion for ensuring equitable access to the arts. She believes in the power of the arts to heal, to empower, and to provide an outlet for creative self-expression. Kate developed her love of the arts at a young age. The moment she stepped onstage in a kindergarten holiday performance, she was hooked! She earned a bachelorís degree in theatre arts and a masterís degree in humanities. She also holds multiple subject and single subject (English/theatre) teaching credentials and an administrative services credential. Although Kate has dabbled in all forms of the visual, performing, and literary arts, her favorite artistic pursuit is photographing the ever-changing landscape of the valley.

Over the years, she has worked as a middle school teacher, curriculum coordinator, arts integration specialist, and now a VAPA (Visual and Performing Arts) consultant.
