After graduating with a math and economics degree from Haverford College, Kae joined the Americorps VISTA program and went to work at the New Kensington Community Development Corporation in economic development. Working under former NKCDC co-worker and fellow KCFC member Henry Pyatt, she was fascinated with the cooperative business model as a way to create truly community-serving businesses and provide economic justice. Kae has since gone on to become the Director of Economic Development at NKCDC. She also is a founding member of the Kensington Tool Library steering committee, which is a group of neighbors working to start a cooperative tool library in Kensington. Kae is a new homeowner in the 19134 ZIP code and, in her downtime, can most often be found hiking at local preserves or drinking coffee on her porch with her dog Twiggy Smalls. She can be reached at
