Born from a beautiful island in Camiguin, Philippines. She always dreamt of one day being to provide jobs to her fellow Filipinos and promoting Camiguin which is why she founded the boutique hotel brand Bintana Sa Paraiso. The funny story is she drew the structure on a napkin and luckily it came out amazing. Plus she was able to manage this business 100% remote from another country due to having the most amazing staff.

Kate realized through all of this she has a passion for creating amazing brands that inspire people and make them feel special.
