As a non-attorney advocate, she is a professional with knowledge of special education laws and guidelines, general education curriculum and remedial interventions to guide parents as they negotiate the PPT process in the public schools.
In 2012, she organized the first independent support group in Darien that empowered parents to educate themselves about special education.

As an Executive Functioning coach, Kit uses neuroscience proven interventions to improve student’s academic performance over time. Often, students up through college struggle to maintain their academics by initiating tasks, completing homework, the writing process and planning consistently. And as students age up in school, the demands on Executive Functioning skills are increasingly more complex for them. Kit advises parents on the holistic connections between academic performance, self esteem and effective interventions. She is passionate about the lasting, positive impact appropriate services can have on their child’s experiences in school. We are fortunate to have her here in Darien!
