I have been in the early childhood education field for the past 10 years as both a teacher and administrator. I earned my Bachelor's degree from Illinois State University in education and psychology. I also earned my Masters degree in Early Childhood Administration from National Louis University as well as the Illinois Director Credential Level 3, Early Childhood Credential Level 5, and Infant Toddler Credential Level 2. Early on in my life, I always saw myself as an elementary education teacher, however I found my love of the little ones when I got my first job at a child care center teaching Pre-K. I love the amazement on their faces when they learn something new and their ability to be silly. I truly believe that children learn best through their play in a loving and nurturing environment. I love getting to know our families and look forward to creating strong relationships within our school!

As the parents of two children, we struggled to find a satisfactory day care. During our search we decided to embark on our lifelong dream of owning a business and fell in love with Kiddie Academy. Kiddie Academy possesses all of the qualities that we were looking for with caring teachers, a fun atmosphere and strong curriculum. Katie helps oversee the day to day operations at both our Bolingbrook and Darien locations, and is very active with the Kiddie Academy corporate office in developing exciting changes to programs nationwide. Our children are our greatest blessing and during their time at Kiddie Academy, they received a well-rounded education while building on their personality and growth; all while having fun and making new friends! We thank you for choosing Kiddie Academy and we promise to give your children the same experience and treatment as our own!
