Kate Spencer



Kate joined Pekarsky & Co. as a research associate in February 2018. Prior to joining the firm, Kate worked as a purchaser for a local equine retail company where she was a key component to the buying team as well as assisting in all aspects of customer service.


Kate holds a Bachelor of Communication & Culture from the University of Calgary. Prior to completing her degree, Kate spent her post high school years roaming throughout Europe and obtaining her Competition Coach certificate, working as a trainer and instructor at a local showjumping facility.


Whether through her experience in retail, backpacking or working with horses, Kate has learned the importance of patient problem solving and brings these skills to her research role at the firm. Within the equine space, no progress is ever made by cutting corners and Kate approaches the rest of her life the same way – thoroughness and patience with a pinch of creativity equates success.


Outside of work, Kate remains a competitive showjumper, and can be found most weekends south of the city, jumping sticks with her horse, Fred. She also enjoys skiing in the winter, hiking in the summer and spending time with her ever-growing army of nieces and nephews.

“Hard work, thoroughness, professionalism and authenticity – these are the rungs to the ladder I call success.”
