My name is Katie Fields and I am the Assistant Director of the Child Development Center and I also teach our Little Learners Preschool program. I have been with the Kearney Family YMCA for five years and absolutely love working with the children and families that I have over the years. Along with my rewarding job comes working with incredible staff that makes the YMCA a wonderful place to be.

I am currently a student at Central Community College of Grand Island. I will graduate in December of 2021 with my degree in Applied Science, majoring in Early Childhood Education. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband working on projects around our house, gardening and cooking. We also like to travel and go back home to Illinois and Wisconsin when we can, to see our families.
