Katie Podkoscielny

Katie has a Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Studies from Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario. She has worked in all aspects of childcare for the past 10 years. She started her journey with BrightPath in 2021 as the Centre Director at BrightPath Chestermere and is excited to be the new Centre Director at BrightPath Legacy.

She has been a Director for Ontario Summer Camp Programs for the past 9 years. She has extensive experience working with children in the education sector that have special needs and require specialized programming. She also has worked in the Hospital as an Educational Support/Child and Youth Worker with children and youth that require stabilization, and treatment for acute mental health symptoms.

Katie enjoys working with children and staff to achieve personal and academic goals. She enjoys learning about new ways to help her team succeed and keep children's learning up to date with the best practices. Her calm, patient and positive demeanor is what children and staff love most about her. Katie is also a lifelong learner and is always interested in new ways to help better herself and others around her. She is a strong advocate for children with disabilities and will go above and beyond to make sure they feel included in today's society.

In Katie's spare time she enjoys playing with her 2 cats Lorenzo and Crescendo. She enjoys exploring and sightseeing the city and countryside with her fiancé. She also enjoys trying new foods, shopping, crafting, and making music with her family back home in Ontario.
