RHL PReschool Director

Katherine Yeakel has been working professionally with children for over twenty years and has helped direct Children's Ministry programs for over fifteen! Katherine completed her Graduate program through California Lutheran University with an emphasis in Educational Leadership. Katherine's studies also include her undergraduate degree from California State University, Fullerton as well as Orange Coast College with her emphasis in Child and Adolescent Studies. 

Katherine's experience with Early Childhood Development and success in the completion of National Accreditation's help ensure that best practices and high quality programming are the leading factors in day to day operations for RHL Preschool. Katherine thrives in her passion of working with children and their families and is seen often in the community helping raise awareness for cancer prevention and community wide advocacy for people of all ages. 

When Katherine is not at RHL Preschool Directing and leading the team, she can be found cooking up a storm for her family or enjoying her boys in blue playing on the field-let's go Dodgers! Katherine and her family currently reside in the beach side town of San Clemente where they enjoy the sun-kissed water and soak up bonfire evenings. Katherine and her Husband Matthew have four beautiful boys under the age of 10.
