Dr. Kathy Koch's Publicity Bio
Dr. Kathy loves helping parents and teachers celebrate children for who they are so they can do what they were designed to do. When children discover and live their story with passion and purpose, it’s a beautiful thing! With compelling truths, memorable illustrations, and an engaging style, she has influenced thousands of parents, educators, and children in over 25 countries through keynote messages, seminars, chapels, retreats, and other events. She’s written three books published by Moody and earned a Ph.D. from Purdue University. She was a professor, teacher, coach, and school board member prior to founding Celebrate Kids, Inc., of Fort Worth, Texas, and becoming a full-time speaker and author in 1991. She has loved Jesus for years and her faith and desire to serve and glorify God are the foundation of her ministry.
Celebrate Kids, Inc. is dedicated to helping especially parents, educators, and children of all ages meet their core needs of security, identity, belonging, purpose, and competence in healthy ways. Through a problem-solving framework of these integrated needs, our programs and products provide solution-focused strategies that improve their intellectual, emotional, social, physical, and spiritual health.
Celebrate Kids helps teachers, parents, grandparents, administrators, and those who volunteer with children understand today’s children and teens, value them, and help them use their strengths only for good and not to do harm.
Through live presentations, online courses, an extensive product line, and blog posts we offer hope for today and tomorrow and solutions that work. Founded in 1991, we also offer a bi-weekly e-mail newsletter, encouragement and questions worth asking children on our Facebook page, and short videos to inspire you and your children on our Vimeo channel.
