About the Author
Katie has worked with children throughout her whole career and has a bachelor’s degree in communication and a minor in family and human development. Her favorite job was at an after school program, where she got to explore storytelling and engage with kids. Katie has always had a passion for storytelling, her favorite thing to do while working after school would be to make up stories for the kids and then make them the characters. Telling a child a story can make their day, teach valuable life lessons, and help them explore the wonders of their imagination! Katie’s dream is to share her stories and make children from around the world smile.
