After her twins were born in 2014 and as she tried to juggle a demanding strategy consulting career with motherhood, Kate soon realized that she had a lot to learn about parenting multiples! She dove head first into twin parenting groups online and made use of the many resources available to her via the internet to learn as much as she possibly could about parenting multiples. Kate became an Associate for TLC because she is passionate about enabling expectant parents of twins to enter into multiple parenthood prepared and equipped so that they can both handle the unique demands and enjoy the fascinating journey that is parenting multiples. Seven months after giving birth to her twins, Kate ran the New York City marathon, which had been a dream of hers for several years prior. She jokes that the sleep deprivation of early days with twins gave her the mental toughness she needed to make it through.

From her unexpected birth experience she quickly learned that life with twins would prove to be chaotic, and being knowledgeable about different equipment, processes, and milestones was one way to feel in control. Lori holds a leadership position in her local MoM group, and is excited to have another avenue through TLC to help parents of multiples in northern California.
