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


¡Bienvenidos! My name is Kate Dana and I am a teacher, traveler, and writer. I specialize in articles about living and working abroad, global education, travel in Latin America, and personal finance.

In 2012, I moved to Mexico for one year before going to Colombia, where I lived and worked for four years. In 2018, I returned to the United States, briefly living in Charleston, S.C. before relocating to Seattle, WA, where I currently reside.

My website is being updated to bring you more of what I have to offer, as well as some interesting stories about my journey. Please have a look around and check back soon for new information.

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

For my blog about life on the coast, visit La Gringa Costeña.

“[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.”
