I am Cate Phillips and I am the new Infant Toddler Specialist at River Valley Child Development Services and their Connect Child Care Resource and Referral Office in Charleston, WV. I grew up in Mint Hill, North Carolina, just outside of Charlotte. I graduated from Independence High School in 2002 before moving to Huntington, West Virginia in 2003 to attend Marshall University. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Child Development in December 2008 and my Associate’s degree in Early Childhood Education in May of 2009. Since then I have worked as a Developmental Specialist with West Virginia Birth to Three and as a Public PreK Teacher with both Putnam and Kanawha County.

I am married to a great guy named Ben who works at a local hospital and together we have two girls, Abigail who is 4 and Annabelle Paige who is almost 2! They are the light of our lives and they bring so much fun and chaos to our world! We also have a one year old Pug named Mollie. She is wild and loves to eat crayons. Our life is very full but we wouldn’t have it any other way!

I am excited about being back in the Infant Toddler world! I have a passion for not only helping children succeed and excel, but also in helping teachers understand the curriculum they are following and simple ways to help them become more organized, efficient models for children.
