Prof. Kate Wood is one of the pre-made NPC mathematics professors in La Fiesta Tech from The Sims 2: University. She can be made playable by befriending and asking her to move in, or by marrying her. Kate has the same facial structure as Meredith Lillard. Her name is randomized when La Fiesta Tech is generated. The name "Prof. Kate Wood" is only referenced in the game files.
Strangely when editing in SimPE, Aldric Davis recognizes Kate as his friend, but the relation isn't mutual, as Kate doesn't even know who Aldric is. The reason for this unrequited relation is unexplained, but there are a few other Sims from University that have these sorts of quirks. Ironically, despite her aspiration, Kate has a low interest in money.
