Katie Boggs (She/her)
Katie's journey to Vermont has been quite an adventure. In June 2023, she made the move all the way from her hometown of Asheville, North Carolina with her husband and their dog.
Before her big move, Katie had a fulfilling role as a rehab technician at UNC Health Care. In that role, she had the privilege of assisting in physical therapy (PT), occupational therapy (OT), and neurological PT. Her educational background includes extensive study in the areas of biology and psychology at Mars Hill University, where she honed her passion for understanding the body and mind.
Interestingly, Katie's journey with education and working with children began long before any of her formal studies, as she spent many rewarding days volunteering in her mother’s kindergarten classroom. It was here that her passion for early childhood education really blossomed.
When Katie's not in the classroom, you can find her making the most of her weekends outside. She is an avid nature enthusiast, so hiking Vermont's stunning trails has become one of her favorite pastimes. Additionally, her love for travel knows no bounds, and she is always eager to explore new places and cultures.
