Fields: First Steps

Kathy has dedicated her career to helping people. She brings to First Steps over 15 years of experience working in behavioral health, with very young children, adolescents, in early intervention, and with families of all shapes and sizes. She graduated from New Mexico State University in 2006 and recently received her Master’s degree in Social Work from Western New Mexico University in 2023. She holds a level two endorsement in Infant Mental Health which she earned in 2017 and uses in everyday interactions to highlight how important parents are to the growth and development of their children.

Kathy was born and raised in southern New Mexico and moved to Taos in 2012 with her husband after living and working out of state. Kathy knows the challenge of balancing work and parenting as the proud mom of two young children who keep her busy, happy, and tired. When not packing lunches or dropping off kiddos, Kathy enjoys a good laugh and chat with friends, camping, playing yard games, and exploring the mountains.
