Senior STEM Consultant
Katie Grootegoed is proud to have many accomplishments that have improved quality of life for various underserved communities. However, she is looking forward to continuing to make a lasting impact in her current role.

Katie received her BA in Education from John Carroll University (Go Blue Streaks!), her MS in Physiology at Long Island University, Brooklyn, and her Masters Specialist Certificate in Educational Technology from Missouri State University. She has been an educator in New York City, Virginia, and Ohio with experience in K-16.
