My name is Katie Fitzgerald this will be my fourth year as Home and School President!  My husband, Joe, and I have three children.  Our oldest son, Zeb, is a sophomore at Dowling and our son, Keegan, is a freshman at Dowling.  Our daughter, Eden, is in 5th grade Spanish Immersion at SAS. They are all participants in the Spanish Immersion program and we are very impressed!

I earned a bachelors degree from UNI in Communications with a Marketing minor and after college worked at Principal Financial Group. I became a stay-at-home Mom after Zeb was born and enjoy volunteering at the school.  I am also a substitute teacher and the social director for the church.

My husband and I joined St. Anthony’s in 2005 and are active parishioners.  I am proud to be a part of St. Anthony’s community and look forward to a fantastic year with lots of fun activities!
