Kate is a Jill of all trades. Born a geek, she has trained in multiple disciplines, and worked in IT, Music and Education before settling on nursing. A lifetime classic car geek, she was influenced by Greenpeace's statement that "it's better to keep a car on the road longer than replace it with a new one", something she lives by. She has owned a variety of EVs and 'classic' (or at least old) cars; and currently runs a Prius, an iMiEV and a Morris Minor. She reckons that the Morris 1000 would make the perfect EV. "Lightweight and rear wheel drive for an easy conversion, what's not to love. Also, they look gorgeous!". Her project to convert her Minor is at The Electric Minor Project.
