about Kathy

Hi and Welcome! I am Kathy Grate, the Creative Director and Principal Planner for Divine Occasions! I am honored that you decided to visit my site to learn more about us and how we can assist you with your event!

Here are just a few tidbits about me....

First, I love God with all my heart! He loves me unconditionally, consistently blesses me and always has my back! I'm forever grateful to Him and thank Him daily for life, my family, friends and talents He has given me!

I am married to the kindest and most wonderful man, God has ever placed on earth, Daniel! We were college sweeties and have been married for 15 fantastic years!

As for education, I have a MBA from Morgan State University and a B.S. in Accounting from South Carolina State University! I also attended Georgia Perimeter College and received my certification in Event Planning!

I'm a Southern Lady and a sorority girl (Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.) who loves to travel! I love all things beautiful....the ocean, blue skies, flowers and smiling faces!

Finally, I have a true passion for what I do! I love creating an intimate atmosphere that will celebrate one of the greatest milestones in your life! I look forward to working with you and helping transform your event into a divine occasion!
