Katy Gainor studied early education at Webster University with a desire to teach kindergarten through 3rd grade. During her time at Webster she joined a local talent agency to work part-time and supplement her income. She was successful with the tralent agency and was asked to travel the world. She lived abroad working with other talent agencies in wonderful places. These experiences helped give Katy insight and patience when dealing with others. This wonderful experience required Katy to put her education on hold while she pursued her career. After a very successful career she met her husband and settled down in California to raise a family. Katy is a St. Louis native so when her daughter Samantha turned 8 she returned home to be closer to her family.
Katy first learned about The St. Michael School of Clayton while her 2 nephews were attending the school from the age of preschool through 8th grade. Katy has a deep love of the school due to the family oriented faculty, staff and parents that grace the halls everyday. She inquired regarding employment in the summer of 2016 and worked at The Church of St. Michael and St. George before her promotion to Executive Assistant one year later and continues to enjoy her position immensely. With laughter and much love, each day is new and different, Katy would have it no other way!!!
