Kathryn Lee, M.A

Families Specialist

Kathryn Lee directs RULER for Families at the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence and helps implement the Four Pillars of Wellbeing curriculum seamlessly into the home environment. Kathryn is a seasoned educator with nearly 30 years of experience. Before her work at Yale University, she was the director of Innovation, Partnerships, and Service at Prospect Sierra School, where she led the design of a K-8 community engagement program, spearheaded student-led efforts to become a nationally recognized green school, and co-curated a TEDx event on compassion - a project in partnership with the Greater Good Science Center at U.C. Berkeley. The early years she spent as a preschool and kindergarten teacher still inspire her. In addition to exploring the nature of emotions, human potential, and wisdom, Kathryn enjoys the natural world, being the parent of a grown son, and creating beautiful spaces for living and learning. Her first mindfulness retreat was with Joseph Goldstein and Jack Kornfield in 1983.
