Kayte is our hearing producer and has been working with the Equal Voices Arts team in Aotearoa New Zealand since 2014. She works closely alongside Rachel with managing the motley crew of artists, sorting all planning, logistics and budgets, applying for grants, and helping to develop strategic planning for the company as it moves ahead to the next stages of our work in Aotearoa New Zealand.

In a previous life, Kayte studied in Australia to become a qualified Teacher of the Deaf and taught in a School for the Deaf in Melbourne before moving to Aotearoa New Zealand in 2010. Kayte has a Graduate Diploma of Education (Primary), Master of Education (Language Intervention / Deaf studies) and a Bachelor of Applied Science (Disability Studies). She also worked closely with the Waikato Deaf community on a 3yr funded Community Development project from 2014 – 2018.

When Kayte isn’t saving the day on one of our projects, she is running around after her 2 young children and is a resource teacher in the Waikato, supporting teachers and staff to ensure students with varied needs are accessing their education in the best possible way.
