Kate Fernando

Kate Fernando considers herself fortunate to be born and raised in Sri Lanka –a beautiful island nation just off the southeastern coast of India. In 2004, Kate along with her parents and brother, made the decision to move to Austin, Texas. In 2012, she earned her Bachelor’s degree in accounting at St. Edward’s University. Currently, she is thrilled to be the new Assistant Controller of both St. David’s Medical Center and Heart Hospital of Austin. She also attends a local college to take additional college credits to attain the CPA license and hopes to pursue a career in the healthcare industry.

In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, doing outdoor activities, reading, traveling and volunteer activities.

Living in the United States has provided her with numerous opportunities to grow and develop, both in her personal and professional life. However, she continues to hold fast to traditions, values and beliefs of the Sri Lankan culture and her ultimate goal is to use these opportunities to do something meaningful and give back to her home country.
