I have my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Central Missouri in Early Childhood Education. After graduation, I moved back to St. Louis and taught preschool in the public school system. In March of 2015, I moved to Omaha for my husband’s job and started here at Primrose. Since being here, I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of ages. I have a passion for teaching and watching each child grow. I enjoy working alongside both teachers and families, along with each classroom. I love being a part of this close school community.
Both my parents were in the Air Force, so I moved around quite a bit during my childhood. When my dad retired, we moved to South Carolina, which is where I attended middle and high school. I then briefly attended University of South Carolina before moving to Omaha in 2007. Shortly after moving to Omaha, I started at Primrose School of Legacy, and I now have over 15 years of childcare experience. I have two children who both were able to attend Primrose and are now in elementary and middle school.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Education with an Endorsement in K-6 and 7-12 Physical Education. I have been a part of the Primrose family for nine years. Before I became a part of the management team, I loved teaching in all of our classrooms, as well as leading out Thumbs Up! physical development education program. I love to spend time with my husband and three adorable little boys. I can’t wait to learn more about you and your family.
We are excited to be the owners of Primrose School of Legacy, which has been operating in the local area for over 15 years. We also own and operate Primrose School at West Maple, which opened it's doors in January of 2021 and Primrose School of La Vista, which we acquired in October of 2021. We have been married 11 years and have two boys, Trevor (7) and Brody (5). Both boys attended Primrose School of Legacy since they were 6 weeks old. They are now doing great in Kindergarten and Second Grade!
Cole started his career in the financial services industry in Omaha after earning his Bachelor's degree from Nebraska Wesleyan University. In 2014 he founded Stichler Wealth Management, LLC. Katie has 14 years of experience in the Education field. She completed both her undergraduate degree in Education and her master’s degree in Counseling from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Before Primrose, she was a school counselor in the Omaha Public Schools system for eight years.
We were initially introduced to Primrose during our exhaustive search for quality childcare for our first son, Trevor. We wanted much more than just a daycare. We instantly fell in love with Primrose for many of the same reasons our current families have. Seeing our children grow socially, emotionally, and intellectually has been the best part of our journey together by far. We believe our professional backgrounds serve us well to own and operate multiple Primrose School locations; however, we believe being parents, and being parents to children that have been in the Primrose system, is the most valuable experience we have.
We look forward to continuing to serve the families that choose Primrose Schools for their children's early education and care!
