One of Katherine’s nominators had this to say about her:

“In asking myself why nominate Katie Dallmeyer, my mind went in 20 different directions at once. Katie is the nanny at 26 I wish I had been at 18 or even now at 41. Katie has pushed me to be a better nanny, by changing how I respond to my charges, helping me communicate with them and their families in a constructive and non-accusatory way, making me want to educate myself and push myself to learn things outside my comfort zone to become a better nanny and person.”
