Kathryn has been involved in and dedicated to Waldorf education since 1999 when she trained at the Michael Institute and assisted at the Portland Waldorf School in Oregon. She took her first class in 2001 at a Waldorf school in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Her love of travelling and interest in Asian culture also led her to Kathmandu, Nepal to work with Waldorf initiatives there.
She has since taught in Waldorf schools in four countries and has attended workshops and conferences in Canada, the United States, Mexico and India. In Ontario she was a class teacher and Pedagogical Chairperson at the Trillium Waldorf School after having also served on the Board of Trustees. Kathryn completed her Master’s degree in Waldorf Education at Antioch University New England.
Kathryn also studied fashion design in New York City and has experience in performing arts through dance and circus. Her background in the arts influences her creative approach to teaching. Her desire for mountains and an artistic community led her to the Kootenays. She moved with her family from Ontario to Nelson in 2016 to take her current class.
