With a degree in musical theater and over 15 years of experience in the classroom, Catherine loves to combine her two loves – teaching young children and music! After creating and teaching the music curriculum at the Brentwood Family YMCA Preschool, Catherine went on to open her own performing arts studio, Setting the Stage, teaching dance, music, and theater, but with an emphasis in showcasing original student creations. Catherine also created her own one-woman puppet show, called “Mizz KT and Friendz” where she taught SEL (Social Emotional Learning) through electronic pop music and quirky puppetry. She was also the Supervising Producer, directing the studio production team at Magic Ears, a Chinese-based ESL company, creating their educational entertainment content for their students abroad. She lives in Nashville, with her husband and adorable son, Jackson (better known as Jack Jack).
