Kat Dunster


Hi there and thank you for stopping in to learn more about us! My name is Kat and I am a transplant to the area. I've spent most of my life living in Asheville, NC. When I am not engaging with the amazing team and participants of Little Lakers, I am striving to be THE best (and I DO mean award winning) Auntie to my two nieces and two nephews. I also have four roommates that I adore; three dachshund rescue pups and one fierce rescue kitty. I have spent my professional life in a wide array of industries and I am excited knowing I can bring those experiences and skills I've collected to better serve the Little Lakers community. My door is always open, so please feel free to stop by and swap stories!
