Interview with Katie

Tell us about yourself

I am a mom of three boys and 3 dogs. I have been with TEAM 4 Kids for 8 years now and I love it! I have held various positions here which has helped me grow tremendously. I like to spend my time traveling, finding adventures outdoors, and playing games with my kids.

Why did you join the community education team at T4K?

When I am passionate about something I want everyone to know, so it was a natural fit! I love educating the public about the everyday miracles that happen within the walls of TEAM 4 Kids. They say to choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life. This is definitely true for me!

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

I enjoy being active, trying new things, and accomplishing goals. I love nothing more than to watch others do the same thing. Life can be hard, everyone should have someone to encourage them along the way. I hope I can be that person for others.

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

The owners really care about the continuing education and personal growth of each employee and the employees are all so supportive of each other and the company mission. It is a great place to come to every day.

What is your favorite motivational quote?

“If you improve by 1% a day, then in 100 days, guess what? You’ll be 100% better.” ~Ken Carter


Nominations for Katie:

 “Katie is motivational by being an exercise buddy, encourages others to grow outside of their comfort zone when it comes to marketing T4K, and never focuses on the obstacles.”

Katie motivates me to be a better person! She leads by example, sets goals for herself, is dedicated, and is always working to learn and grow. She has great insight and motivates others to be the best they can be!”

She has always been motivating, she pushes me as well as anyone to reach their gym goals. She asks us if we’ve reached this week’s goal. I can definitely say she is one of many individuals who inspire not just myself but many others here in T4K.”

Katie’s dedication and love for the fitness challenge has ME even thinking about joining it. She’s always cheering others on, and it’s so genuine.”

She has always taken on difficult challenges (Boston Marathon twice, cough cough) and succeeded! She is always pushing others to reach their own goals and to be the best they can be.”

If you have a challenging thing you are working on or a goal and Katie knows about it, she will be the first person to tell you you have got this and encourage you by letting you know you are doing a great job. Katie should be a life coach!”

Katie has been inspiring me to be my best self since I started at Team 4 Kids. She has helped me achieve growth in the company and learn to take 1 thing at a time. She is always encouraging me to look back into schooling and offering to help me with completing the forms. She also helps us as a team to set goals and find areas we would like to improve on. Katie constantly sends our marketing reports and helps encourage us to get our numbers higher and sends supportive messages in chat that makes us want to do, and be, better. :D”
