Kate has lived all her 46 years in the New Forest, and the New Forest runs in her blood.
She taught horse riding and worked for Ordnance Survey after university, then embarked on a 2 year round the world backpacking trip. Upon her return, she retrained as a secondary maths teacher and has been working in local schools for the last 16 years. She has also been actively involved in local sustainability and eco groups for years. Kate launched her successful local business, The New Forest Tartan Company, in 2017, is delighted to be a Director for the New Forest Marque, and will happily support and promote local and sustainable businesses in our stunning and unique New Forest.
