Kate Millar is Our LANER OF THE WEEK!

Matthew Borchers

Kate comes to us from Victoria BC, Canada! After four years in NYC, and attending The Ailey School, this professional dancer has recently been dabbling in the brand ambassador world! She had the chance to perform all over the US, dancing alongside a NYC recording artist and is excited for some fun, upcoming dance and acting projects! Let's learn a little more...

What do you like about Mustard Lane or just working events in general?

I love the people!! From my very first meeting, to the people I've met on site, and of course the lovely Laners that have introduced me to ML! All have given me such a positive view of the company and I trust that in any event they've got my back! Respect goes both ways here, and it shows. I love the energy of the events - working or attending - everyone is sure to have an enjoyable time. :)

When you're not on the Lane...what are you doing?!

Anything creative! Dance classes, acting classes, collaborative photoshoots, pilates...and of course countless auditions (as any performer will know). Otherwise, I always enjoy taking in the sunset after a nice full day, listening to music, walking through the streets and getting to know the city more. I'm a sucker for a good movie, or binging a new tv show.

Favorite restaurant or food?

BRUNCH! My go to is a classic Eggs Benedict! I also love pasta. Spaghetti happens to be my favorite meal (but only if it's homemade by my Mom!)

What is one of your goals for 2023?

Get involved in as many different activities around the city as I can. Career related or not, I'm always happy to meet new people and learn more about myself and others!

Name a place you'd love to travel to. And why?!

I would love to travel to Australia!! The wilderness, kind people, cool accents, beautiful beaches and bright sun is hard to resist! Or anywhere tropical...anywhere I can soak in the heat! Also Montreal, more local but I love going back to my French Canadian roots/family and putting my French to use!

What's your favorite way to spend a day off?

Playing volleyball in the park with friends, walking around a new neighborhood, bagels and cream cheese, Chinese takeout, going to the lake/beach with friends, etc.

Do you prefer podcasts or books? Favorite one?

I think books! Reading allows me to really grasp concepts and expand my vocabulary as well. I love psychology so any books by Malcolm Gladwell and Adam Grant are infinitely interesting to me!

What's your hidden talent?!

This may seem silly, but there isn't a knot in the world that I can't untie! So if your jewelry ends up in a terrible tangle, I'm your girl!

If you could have your dream job tomorrow, what would it be?

So many to choose from...but if I woke up tomorrow as the newest star in a big budget Hollywood film, I'd be one happy gal.

What's an essential part of your daily routine?

Coffee! A simple pleasure to get the day going right.

What life lesson did you learn the hard way?

Mistakes will happen. It's how you handle those mistakes, and if you choose to learn from them that will define your character.

What is your favorite family/friend tradition?

The Holiday season is always really special to me! It is normally a time I get to travel back home to Canada to be with friends and family. Always a nice chance to regroup and re-energize myself for another year in the city!

What's a brand or event that you would love to represent or work should the chance ever arise?

Formula 1!!! Or any big sporting events, live shows, or movie premieres!

What inspires you most?

Pure grit and determination. Also, people who respect themselves wholeheartedly...inspires me to expect the same from myself!
