Meet Kathie

My very first definition of myself is that I’m a parent to three wonderful children. While I’m not a perfect parent, my kids are pretty amazing people and I’m very proud of them.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve enjoyed working with children and their parents—first as a babysitter and later in my career in the area of family services. In the many years I’ve worked with parents and their children, I continue to feel honored and privileged to be allowed into their homes and lives.

As a parent, I know firsthand the challenges, rewards, frustrations, and joys of raising children. As a mom and professional, I’ve tried to better my understanding of children, families, and their needs, including my own. I recognize that it is so easy to get lost in the crazy moments and react to a child’s behavior or a family situation, and regret it later. I’ve done that. Many times. I also know that most parents are doing the best they can and just need a little extra support or encouragement.

This is why I’ve founded MyKnoxVillage. Here you’ll gain access to —a comprehensive directory of child and family services and the ability to connect with a certified Parent Coach to start the process of truly enjoying your child and your role as a parent. Contact me today for any reason. I would love to hear from you!
