A Little Bit About Me

This organization is very dear to my heart. I founded it in 2008 after seeing first hand the negative factors many children have to endure in their young lives. I wanted to make a difference so I created C.A.T.M. Unfortunately it didn't take off as I envisioned, but I am thrilled to see it blossoming now. I am currently one of the Owners of Kayla's Korner Child Enrichment Center & also the Director, HR Administrator and a CACFP Sponsor! I wear many different hats! I have an extensive background in Non-Profit Management and HR. My education includes an Associates Degree in Education, Bachelors in Business Administration with a minor in HR and MBA.

I strongly believe in teamwork & I can ensure you that the team we have for our After-School Program is awesome! These ladies have been in the Education Field for a combined total of over 50 plus years! They each bring so much to the Organization & their passion aligns completely with our concepts.

I encourage you to volunteer and donate to this wonderful cause. Our children are the future and we have to play an active role in their lives to propel them to greatness! Again, thank you for visiting our site and we hope to see you soon!
