Over the years, I’ve encountered many common issues and needs that come up among almost all parents and families. So, I’ve developed a set of fun, informal and interactive family workshops [some for parents and children together; some for parents alone], as well as a set of informative, candid presentations I give to school, community and other grownup groups.

Katie speaking


“Katie received glowing comments and across-the-board 5 star ratings from the discerning group of attendees.”
Gianna Viola, conference organizer

“At IST we are committed to the physical and mental well-being of our students as they experience the undeniable milestones and challenges of growing up. We have worked extensively with Katie for several years to host workshops for our community on a variety of topics – from puberty to parent wellness. She engages extremely well with students and parents alike. Her deep knowledge base and practical experience with children is delivered with down-to-earth approachability and charm – which makes her a parent favorite, year after year. We are delighted to partner with Katie and recommend her highly.”

Tim Reilly, Head of School, International School of Texas

“It has been a long time since I felt that a presenter was actually talking to me. [This workshop] was amazing.”

Thank you, again, for presenting to us yesterday. My staff LOVED it!

We received great feedback about the workshop, it is such an important topic!  We look forward to future workshops on other topics as well.
