Work Hard Mom Hard

Jun 27, 2019

Katie Brandow spent 13 years working in the non-profit mental health sector, working with families in youth advocacy, child protection, family preservation and reunification services, and medical social work. Katie is fascinated by brain development, developmental stages, and the social emotional development of children. Katie is passionate about supporting parents in finding trusted care with enriching experiences so that parents can maintain a healthy life balance and feel in their core being that their kids are safe and enriched.
