I’m Katie, an early childhood educator in Southern Indiana. I create engaging resources for preschoolers and toddlers all over the world.
I’m the mother of a 9-year-old boy who loves reading almost as much as he loves Fortnite. My husband, Clint, is a tall and charming comic book nerd. We live out in the country with our two dogs and a small army of cats. I love traveling, Taylor Swift, and rewatching The Office over and over. My Enneagram type is three!
Life with a Chronic Illness
I have IIH (Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension) which means there’s too much CSF pressure on my brain; so much that it mimics a tumor. I had brain surgery in April 2019 to have a shunt put in to save myself from going completely blind. While it gave me some relief, I still suffered from some vision loss and can no longer drive. I had to leave the classroom, which was devastating for me.
It’s difficult to look on the bright side sometimes, but knowing that the resources I’ve created have reached so many children reminds me that I’m still able to have an impact on young children… in my own way. Every Little Adventure has grown into something bigger than I ever thought it would be, and I don’t think I’d be here if it weren’t for everything that happened to me.
