Kate Mock Elliot, Secretary
The recipe for a Kate Mock Elliott is to take one part Peter Pan complex, two parts Type-A control freak, mix together and simmer inside twelve years of Catholic school, let rise in a liberal arts music program, combine with an atheist guitarist, add two strong-willed daughters, fill with a burning desire to change the world for the better, and flavor generously with a wide assortment of hobbies, passions, interests, and skills. Heat over a candle burning at both ends, and watch what happens. https://www.katemockelliott.com/
