Kate McIntosh joined the Carolina Mornings Team in 2022 after 6 years of experience with property management/short term rentals on the West Coast. Originally from Orange County, California Kate grew up playing in the Pacific Ocean and adventuring in the San Antonio Mountains before relocating to Chicagoland, where her extended family lives and is proudly known as South Side Irish.
Kate's love of the mountains and hiking were born from seeing the San Gabriel Search & Rescue Team save her oldest brother's life after a freak hiking occurrence in 1992. Since then Kate has hiked Eagle's Nest Open Space (CO), Pike's Peak (CO), Ithaca Falls (NY), Taughannock Falls (NY), Mount Baldy (IN), Cowles Bog (IN) and Poudre River Trail among others. When Kate isn't finding you the perfect Carolina Mornings rental, she enjoys spending time with her family, all things Lake Michigan and local live music.
