Karen Otto-Seed

Co-Director

Hello my name is Karen Otto-Seed. I am the new Co-Director here at Legacy Academy. I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Early Childhood Education from the University of Mount Olive here in NC (home of the Mount Olive Pickles). I have been in the childcare setting for over 20 yrs. Working with children has always been a passion of mine and I enjoy coming to work every day because no day is ever the same and when you love what you do it isn’t work! Helping children grow and preparing them for their next steps is my goal and my passion.

I live in Cary, NC with my husband Jeff, we have 3 daughters: Terri (25), Brittney (22) & Taylor (21). Things that I enjoy in my free time: shopping, traveling, attending country concerts and sporting events. I enjoy sitting by the pool and spending as much time as possible with my family and friends.
