Kat Habib has made her home in Rappahannock since 2012, fulfilling a life-long dream that began during her childhood over the mountain on a farm in Warren County. Kat served as program manager Headwaters Next Step College & Career Guidance Program from 2014-2019, and the After-School Enrichment Program from 2015-2017. Her relationship with the Rappahannock County school community continues through volunteering, serving on the board of Rapp Nature Camp, and through her marriage to Kreighton Long, a RCHS social studies teacher and coach. Now primarily a ceramic artist, Kat also works as a floral designer with Flourish Root Floral Studio, and as a baker for a Sperryville business. Kat received a BFA from the Corcoran College of Art & Design in Washington, DC, where she managed the ceramics studio for several years and taught in the Pre-College summer program. An active participant in the wood firing community of Virginia, Kat has continued her work as a ceramics educator by offering workshops and twice acting as a studio assistant at the Penland School of Craft in Penland, NC.
