Our Leadership Team

Karee Hatch - Executive Director

I'm a mother of five wonderful children and happily married to my closest companion. I'm passionate about service and dedicated to improving our neighborhoods, communities, and beyond through service. As the Executive Director of ConnectED Co-op, I'm thrilled to be part of shaping the educational journey for all these great kids. When I'm not homeschooling, you'll find me whipping up delicious meals in the kitchen, tending to my garden, engrossed in a captivating book, or savoring the beauty of nature and all its wonders.


Crystal Jordan - Board Chair

Hi, I’m Crystal! I graduated from Weber State with a BIS in Nutrition, Health, and Family. I always love a new endeavor and began homeschooling my two children roughly eight years ago. And while it’s always been amazing, something was missing. That’s when ConnectED came into our lives. Since then, I have found a profound purpose serving in this blossoming community — first as a teacher, then the Assistant Director, and now as the Board Chair. I truly love ConnectED and these incredible young people. 


Katrina Morriss - Secretary  

Hi, I'm Katrina Morriss and have been a homeschooling mom for over 20 years. I really love the freedom, friends and adventures that homeschooling brings. I am so grateful to my amazing husband for all the support he has provided on our journey. We have 3 adult boys, 3 daughter-in-laws and 7 grandchildren. We also have one super sweet teenage girl that goes to this wonderful co-op. In my free-time, I like to hike, kayak and I recently took up Tahitian Dancing. My family keeps me super busy and I wouldn't have it any other way. 


Ashley Jacobson - Marketing Board Member

Hi, I'm Ashley! I was born and raised in sunny Southern California. I moved to Utah in 2008 where I have been ever since. Homeschooling was never on my radar until my oldest was going into kindergarten and we knew this is what we needed to do. We have been homeschooling for 7 years and loved every minute together, but I also know that groups like ConnectED are an invaluable part of the journey and give my kids experiences they can't get anywhere else. I am excited to join the board this year after benefiting from all the hard work of others since the very beginning. Now, a few quick facts about me- I love to read, I'm great at math, traveling is my happy place, and I love trying food from many different cultures.
