Hi I’m Carolyn Lovell, Executive Director of the Day School. I was born in South America, Guyana left Guyana when I was 8 years old and lived in the Cayman Islands, Antigua, Curacao then my family moved to the United States, Virginia when I was 16.
I have my Bachelor’s in Business Management and an Associate in Early Childhood Education. I have been at Catalina since 2006 as a 3 year old teacher then in 2011 I became the Executive Director of the School. I have two dogs a 12 year old Pit bull mix named Nina that I recused and recently I got a Shihpoo mix named Oreo that we got when she was 3 months old and she has lots of energy. I enjoy the Catalina families and community.
Hey I’m Jen Godfrey, Assistant Director of the Day School. I was born in Cincinnati Ohio and moved to Tucson after graduating High School in 2007 from Newtown, Connecticut. I did the Disney World College program in , selling Ice Cream and Popcorn! My favorite treats to sell were Mickey Mouse Ice Cream Bars! When I came back home, I was ready to settle into my career and started working at Catalina in May of 2013 as an afternoon Pre-K teacher. I took over the Summer Camp in 2015 and became Assistant Director in 2022. I have learned and grown so much during my time here and have loved every minute of it. I eventually decided to go back to school and graduated with B.S. in Behavioral Health Sciences with an Emphasis in Childhood and Adolescence Disorders from Grand Canyon University in 2019. I have a black cat named Binx, but I love all animals! I am a huge Disney fan!
