Katrina is responsible for strategic development, curriculum development, marketing, and human resources at the Jumeirah International Nurseries.
Katrina’s heart remains with young children which has led her to developing a career in early childhood education and childcare. Katrina found her calling in the classroom. She spent several years teaching in Jumeirah International Nursery and then moved to Regent International School, a leading British National Curriculum school, where she spearheaded the embedding of the Education in Human ValuesTM Programme across the school with a team of teachers. With her first love always being early childhood education, Katrina returned to JINS to pursue her first love, the education of young children.
Katrina is a committed educationist with over a decade of teaching experience. She brings passion, innovation and an indefatigable spirit to developing the JINS Nurseries, as well as an intellectually deep fascination to how the minds of young children develop.
Katrina graduated from Russia’s leading university, Moscow State University, with a Masters in Public Administration, and also holds a PGCE and CACHE Level 3 certifications from the UK.
Since 2016 Katrina also leads the Positive Education initiative across all Fortes Institutions to ensure that students of all ages develop their emotional intelligence."
