Katy Ditchfield is pleased to be a part of the family here at TCA. She has lived in Florida all her life and continues to love the year-round sunshine. She attended the State College of Florida for 2 1/2 years, and completed her licensure in Cosmetology at Manatee Technical College. Katy recently spent 2 years working as a teacher’s assistant in a special needs classroom for the Haven Academy. She loves children, and that love has only grown the more time she has spent working in the school setting. Katy is looking forward to everything this next year in Preschool will bring! In September of 2015 she was blessed to marry her husband David Ditchfield, and they hope to have a family of their own in the future.
