In line with the campus trend of interviewing departmental admin, we did just that. Allie Leonard, Communication Director at LSPIRG interviewed Kate Murray, newly hired Administration and Development Director. Get to know her!
If there were a biography about you, what would it be called?
The Pursuit of Happiness, but there would be no Will Smith involved. Well, maybe I’ll edit that. Will Smith should be involved.
What do you do on Saturday mornings?
Sleep in and drink coffee. Not at the same time.
What is your favourite place to get your news?
VICE News, right now anyway. It’s critical, investigative, international news. They do that really well.
The first book you loved?
The book adaptation of the Lion King. I read it a million times – sort of. I was too young to read, but I had memorized it from my mom reading it, so I would tell the story without reading the words on the page.
You’re 67 years old – what does your life look like?
Sixty seven? That’s so specific! I’m hopefully retired. Hanging out with my pets, two dogs, two cats. Writing great Canadian fiction [she laughs]. Oh and Bill is there, [she laughs more].
