Katie was born and raised in Santa Rosa, California nestled in the rolling golden hills of the wine country. She holds a B.S. in Psychology from BYU and a B.S. in Communications Disorders from USU. Katie has been an active member of the Montessori community in Salt Lake City since 2010 and has worked as both an early childhood assistant and lead teacher. She has also worked with children in Title 1 and special education preschool programs. From 2014-2016, Katie attended the Institute of Guided Studies and will complete her Early Childhood Montessori credential very soon. Katie is thrilled to join the MCS staff this year as an early childhood teacher. Katie’s husband and 2 children are the greatest gifts of her life. She enjoys spending quality time with them whether on a hike in the mountains, playing on the beach in California, or snuggling on the couch reading books. Fun fact: Katie is an accomplished singer songwriter and performer, whose guitar accompanies her in the classroom daily.
