Katy joined the UCP team as the Early Learning Center Director in September of 2014. She comes to UCP with 10 years of experience working in licensed child care centers and 4 years in supervisory and administrative positions.
Katy graduated from Western Washington University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts in Education and a major in special education. After graduation, she quickly realized that, although she enjoyed educating elementary age children, her true passion is in early childhood education. She has since dedicated her time to expanding her knowledge of early childhood education as well as training others in the field.
“It is my pleasure to have the opportunity to join a team that shares a vision of education through inclusion and empowerment. It is my belief that as early childhood educators we set the stage for lifelong learners by providing children with opportunities to experiment, explore, and take risks. Through the focus of social-emotional development, we can foster confidence in children and empower all children to live a life without limits.”
