Central Virginia - Charlottesville
Dames in the Virginia area have two chapters to choose from!!! We suggest you join both and take advantage of all of the fun activities the Dames have to offer!
My name is Kate Hafemeister and I have lived in Charlottesville, Virginia my whole life. Growing up, I spent much of my time hiking with friends and family in and around Shenandoah, where I developed my love for the outdoors.
I continued this passion through my environmental studies courses and by joining the Trails club at George Washington University for undergrad. I currently work as a paralegal, but every chance I get I am either listening to true crime national parks' podcasts or finding new hikes to explore and challenge myself.
My goal as Head Dame is to foster a positive learning environment in which we can grow to appreciate our earth, our bodies, and our minds together.
