Meet The Team

 

KATE SMITH, FOUNDER


Canadian born, Kate has always had a sense for adventure and travel, having traveled and lived in over 23 countries.

After getting her Bachelor of Commerce and Administration, Kate started her career as a project manager at one of the worlds largest advertising agencies where she worked with brands such as Johnson & Johnson, the Canadian Government, Clorox, and Manulife. Knowing the 9-5 grind wasn't for her, she transitioned to freelance marketing, to accommodate her nomadic lifestyle.

Her expertise for travel and the digital nomad lifestyle has been showcased in BBC, Fast Company, the Etihad Airways inflight magazine, Mashable, BuzzFeed and CNN Travel. 

Having spent a year on Remote Year, Kate understands what works and what doesn't when it comes to group travel as a digital nomad, allowing her to fill the gaps where other programs fall short.
