She received a degree in anthropology from the University of Texas at San Antonio and specializes in historical/archival research and Spanish Colonial archaeology. Kay has received numerous awards for her many contributions to the field, including the 2012 Texas Preservation Hero Award from the San Antonio Conservation Society.

In 2013, Kay discovered a Spanish Colonial site in downtown San Antonio that may be the first site of Mission San Antonio De Valero (1718). She oversaw the extensive archaeological investigations at Main Plaza during plaza renovations as well as for the Plaza de Armas project. Kay has also provided management and coordination for cultural resources for such projects as the Mission Trail, Museum Reach and the Linear Creekways projects for the city.
