Who I Am

The Facts:
I am a Family Communication and Behavior Coach in the Denver metro area with a degree in family and personal communication.  After spending ten years working in the Denver Public School system as a special education coordinator, teacher, advocate, and paraprofessional, I left the teaching profession to concentrate on family communication and behavior.

Following my work in the education sector, I have collaborated with families to aid children as a nanny, tutor, and private coach.  I offer easy-to-execute, fun ideas that help families manage stress, stay organized, and communicate productively.

Let’s work together to help your child succeed at home, school and in life!

The Fun:
I am a 31 year old dog mother and native of Denver, CO.  Jewelry making is my therapy as well as my bi-weekly girls Glee night.  I married my favorite person in 2009 on top of a mountain in Breckenridge, CO.  I loved school although academics were never my strong suit.  Travel, wine, and my husband’s vodka sauce are things I cannot live without.  Leaf green is my favorite color.

  • Second chances should be given without question
  • All kids have profound strengths
  • All kids have profound weaknesses
  • I believe in telling kids the truth
  • A good hug really helps
  • Kids are fun and amazing to watch

Kids will respond to

  • Incentives
  • Positive reinforcement
  • Thoughtful, consistent discipline

    • Hi Julie- So great hearing from you! I need to figure out how to do this blog thing and make it part of my daily life. It will be a beneficial way to connect with my friends and clients in a non-aggressive and informative way. Any tips or tricks you can pass along would be greatly appreciated. I hope you are well, we just got a flyer from your brother the other day and it made me think of you.


    • Hi Laura,

      Thanks! I hope you had a great summer and are ready to get back in the swing of things at JFK. I know that there are a lot of families that could use some extra help in many areas, but finding them is the hard part. Thanks for the support!

      – Katy

  2. Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog! I’m glad I could find yours, as you have a lot of good info on here. I love your beliefs about kids…I should print that out and reference it over the next eighteen years. It seems like it would be very helpful. : )
