Meet The Team!
CEO + Founder
Katie graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in business in 2012. After working in the hotel industry around the country for 5 years, Katie felt a pull in another direction and went into full time ministry for the next 5 years. She now works full time as a preschool teacher and still does ministry part-time on the side as she loved it way too much to walk away.
Katie is a mom of one adorable 2 year old little girl and married to her best friend, Nick. They’ve been together for 10 years and live a life full of adventure and love.
CFO + Co-Founder
Jamie worked at Poway Unified School District for eight years where she found her love and calling working with kids. After leaving PUSD and working in a few other fields Jamie felt the calling to work with kids again.
She started volunteering in youth ministry and ended up working under Katie part time. After having her twin girls late last year she left youth ministry to be a stay at home mom and now works full time for her family business.
COO + Co-Founder
Elisabeth (or Lis, as most of her friends call her) graduated with a degree in Social Development Studies, with an emphasis in Social Work + Social policy, while living and working with a non-profit in East Africa. From nannying to kid's ministry to nonprofit work, child development and psychology has always been a passion of hers. Raising Kind Boxes is the perfect avenue for her passions to align.
Lis lives in San Diego, but grew up in Ontario, Canada. She spends her days drinking too much coffee, dipping her toes in the ocean as much as possible, and always has the next adventure (big or small) planned.
