I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education from Wayne State College. Right after college, I was hired as a Pre-Kindergarten teacher. As my career developed and my passion grew, I moved into a director role. I am very excited to get to know all the new families at Primrose and help enrich the little minds of the children.
I grew up in Omaha and moved to South Dakota to attend Augustana College, where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Communication Disorders in 2015. I moved back to Omaha and started as a Preschool teacher at Primrose School of Legacy in 2016. I've had a wide range of experiences volunteering and working with children. My favorite part of Primrose's curriculum is either Happy Hearts Character Development or Small Group Math in the Venture Program. When I'm not at Primrose, I'm probably working on a project around the house or exploring Omaha's cuisine.
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 bring Primrose Schools to our new West Maple location! We are also the current owners of Primrose School of Legacy, which has been operating in the local area for over 15 years. We just added our third location, Primrose School or La Vista, 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!
