Catherine, who we all know as Katie, was born and raised on the East Coast of Canada. She has a Bachelor of Arts from St. Mary University, Halifax, Nova Scotia. She then completed her Graduate Diploma in Education (Major in English, Minor in Humanities) from Edith Cowan University in Australia, and she spent the subsequent 15 years in the country garnering valuable experience as an English teacher, a Head of Department and other school leader roles.
Upon relocating with her family to Singapore, Katie was drawn to OWIS' values of kindness and being "One with the World". She believes every child is unique and should be given a chance to be understood - once they feel understood, children will bloom and display their talents in various ways.
Katie loves trying different cuisines from around the world and enjoys traveling.
