Having spent summers on nearby Little Cranberry Island, Kate moved from Baltimore to the Mount Desert Island area in 1993 and married Bar Harbor native Courtney Chaplin soon after. Kate is a graduate of Davidson College with a BA in English. Her early careers include teaching for The Stony Brook School and Oldfields School, and a brief stint with Windswept Publishing House in Somesville. She started working at The Knowles Company as office manager in 1994, then transitioned to the rental office and became a rental agent in 1996. After a hiatus to raise her family, Kate returned full-time to the rentals office in 2011, bringing a wealth of rentals experience, local knowledge, and love for the area.

She and her three children make their home in Northeast Harbor. She currently serves on the Northeast Harbor Library Scholarship Committee, and enjoys hiking with her dog Josie, and visiting family and friends on Islesford whenever possible. In 2022, Kate joined the ownership team of The Knowles Company as a minority owner.
