Interview with Katie

Tell us about yourself

I am a mom to a sweet 4 year old girl and this year I married my high school sweetheart. I love to play board games, eat cookies, and listen to Taylor Swift.

Why did you become a Speech Therapist?

Honestly I became an SLP because my mom told me I would be great at it! After tons of research and working as a rehab tech, I went for it and couldn’t be happier with my choice. I guess moms really do know best!

Why do you think your coworkers nominated you for being Diligent?

I believe my coworkers nominated me for being diligent because I am always working to help my teammates out while also working on my own projects.

What do you love most about working with TEAM 4 Kids?

There are so many things I love about working at TEAM 4 Kids but I would say I love the relationships that I build with my coworkers as well as the families that I work with.

If you had one wish, what would it be?

If I had one wish, I would wish for student loan debt to disappear!

Nominations for Katie:

She is extremely detail-oriented. When she puts her mind to something it is always done right, done well, and picture-perfect. I think Katie demonstrates the trait of diligence each day; she was the first person that came to mind when the spotlight trait for July was announced.”

Katie is one of the most detail-oriented people I know. She is constantly helping me by answering my questions (big or small) with very thoughtful and detailed answers. She always works hard for her clients, is invested in their progress, and very rarely is not at work, which shows that she truly enjoys what she does.”

She is always going above and beyond to make sure places are tidy and picked up. Also, within her department, she is very diligent about her work and her kiddos having the best experience!”

She is always going above and beyond to complete all tasks and is always able to lend a hand.  She helps me immensely even without me asking.”

Katie is very goal-oriented and determined to achieve success. Her ambition is inspiring as she is always looking at ways for herself or the team to improve.”

Katie is a very hard working therapist. Her attention to detail is noted by all that are around her. She takes pride in everything she does and she also takes pride in TEAM 4 Kids. She is always coming up with new ideas that will make the department better. Not sure what I would do without a location lead like Katie.”
