Katie received her Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Linguistics from the University of Toronto. She has many years of experience delivering school-based speech therapy to preschool and elementary students and facilitating language groups with adults living with aphasia. Katie has also worked in a research laboratory helping to evaluate dynamic assessment tools for the early identification of at-risk readers in French immersion programs, as well as in her local library’s literacy program.
Her passion lies in helping students foster lifelong language and literacy skills and a deep love of learning, as well as cultivate the confidence and resilience to overcome challenges academically and beyond. She considers it a true blessing to be of service to children through LDS, having the opportunity to work one-on-one in a way that is personally meaningful, engaging – and fun!
