I'm Katie and I'm so glad you're here! I'm a coach and consultant who helps special needs parents and teachers develop loving, communicative relationships with their children, students, and communities. I do this by teaching:
I believe that when we operate from a place of alignment and flow, we generate love, communication, and connection with our school, our community, and one another.
In 2008, I graduated from the University of Georgia with degrees in Journalism & Mass Communication and International Relations. My husband and I married in early 2009 and our oldest son, Jack, was born later that year. He was diagnosed with autism when he was three years old. Shortly after he was diagnosed, we moved from Atlanta to Boston where we now live with our three children. And this year, our daughter was diagnosed with a rare genetic condition.
In addition to parenting two special needs children of my own, in 2013, I started a 500+ strong online community to encourage, uplift, and inspire special needs families on their journeys. I have also led parent workshops across the South Shore to help families navigate the special education process. I currently work in the non-profit sector in direct support of special needs families and professionals. And I'm a degree candidate for Master’s of Education from Eastern Nazarene College with a concentration in Moderate Disabilities and Special Needs (expected 2018).
