My mission is to help busy parents feel confident and capable, enjoy family life, and raise great kids.

Hi, I'm Dr. Kate

Developmental Psychologist and Certified Family Life Educator

Years ago, I was a faculty member in developmental psychology. One afternoon, I was teaching a group of 350 undergraduates how parents can help their child be successful in school. Looking out on the faces of my students, I realized none of them were parents yet.

I was teaching to the wrong audience.

Enter Parent With Science. 

Now I spend my days helping parents directly.

I understand the challenges you face as a modern parent because I am one. And trust me, I have faced my share of tough moments with my own children and family life. Every time, developmental science has helped me, and my family, get back on track.

Born in California, raised in Oregon, and a long-time resident of Seattle, Washington, I am west coast casual and approachable through and through. I bring my calm demeanor, straight-talk style, and quick sense of humor to the world of parenting.
