Founder & CEO

Hey Y’all!

I'm Katie, and creating engaging children’s events is my passion. I have been planning corporate events for 12 years. As a Cal State, Chico graduate I started off my career in San Francisco and now I work out of Fort Worth, Texas, where I love hunting for vintage cowboy boots! Working with for over 10 years has been rewarding and just plain fun. When a group of kids from all over the world meet at our events and make lifelong friendships, it’s such a special thing to witness. I have planned children’s events all over the world; from the beautiful Stanford campus to the breathtaking vistas in Monte Carlo, we make sure event attendees always know, it’s more fun to bring the KidsAlong.
