Katherine ( Kat) obtained a degree in Natural Resource Management, with a minor in business, and put both degrees to good use, working as a Ranger in Yellowstone National Park, where she met Ben, her husband. Her career in Yellowstone N.P. started in 1988, the year of the huge fires, and the reaction of the tourists to (burned) Yellowstone in the following years taught Kat much about customer service. Offering friendly, consistent service that is always customer oriented has been a continuing goal for Kat during her time as Co-owner of Classical Tents.
With a busy family to care for when not at work, including two daughters, three pets, and a husband - life does not offer much time for fine dining and fine linens at home. But when it comes to Classical Tents, Kat is the Queen of Linens! Kat loves fabric and each year works to offer an ever expanding line of fine linens to her customers. Organza, Bengaline, Real Linen, Satins, Twill. If you are looking for a special linen, chances are that Kat can provide it to you!
Community involvement is big on Kat’s list. She is a board member on the Lenox Chamber of Commerce, and on the Berkshire Visitor’s Bureau. She founded the Lenox Wedding Tour, in an effort to brand the Berkshires as a destination wedding location. Classical Tents donates extensively throughout the year to the many non-profit organizations in Berkshire County.
