Kat has been part of our family since 2009, starting off working all positions in the kitchen at Montero’s. She quickly moved up to kitchen manager and is amazing with our staff in the front and back of the house. Kat also caters with us and is our “rock” on Sunday mornings, cooking eggs, biscuits, and pancakes for all of our brunch guests! The youngest of three girls, she was raised in Elizabeth City, spent two years serving our country in the Army and gained a new appreciation for food while stationed in Germany. As a child, she spent a lot of time in the kitchen with her grandmother baking cakes and pies, and that experience led her on this career path. In addition to her grandmother, her inspiration for what she does today is Travis “Papi” Bonilla, a longtime employee of Montero’s who helped trained Kat and died unexpectedly in 2013. Kat carries on Papi’s enthusiasm for food, life and laughter!
