Education & Experience: 

Catherine has worn many hats in her 12+ years as an employee of Groves Learning Organization. She began her career as a Lower School teacher serving the youngest students at Groves Academy. In her last few years as a Lower School teacher, Catherine also held the position of Co-Division Director of the Lower School, providing guidance, support, and leadership to the Lower School faculty. Catherine eventually moved away from the classroom to join the Learning Center team as a Wilson Reading tutor. From there, Catherine took on the role of Tutoring Program Coordinator and now serves as the Tutoring Program Manager for the Learning Center.


Catherine and her husband, Robb, live in the Excelsior/Chanhassen area and enjoy spending time with their three children, Dylann, Ashlynn, and Ryker, and two dogs, Cocoa and Luna.
