“What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.”


¡Bienvenidos!  I am a risk-taker and miracle-maker with five years’ experience living and working abroad. 

From 2012 to 2013, I lived in sunny Mexico before relocating to Colombia, where I lived and worked for four amazing years. In 2018, I returned to the United States, briefly living in Charleston, S.C. and Seattle, WA before relocating to Sacramento, CA, where my journey in international travels began.

Currently, I develop quality online content working as an independent writer for education, travel, and person finance websites. I also use my enthusiasm for teaching and my motivation for assisting others in my role as a Bilingual Technician with the State of California.

For information on my teaching, please visit Kate Dana Teaches.

“[Kate Dana’s] execution of the project – both visually and content-wise – was exactly what we envisioned. She brought some really creative ideas that helped enhance the final product. The project was even completed slightly ahead of schedule.”
