She is a strong advocate for children’s health, wellbeing, and inclusivity.
Kristy personally understands the daily household challenges, big emotions, loneliness, and social judgements that can occur.

Kristy's hands on experience collaborating with schools and educators is invaluable in supporting other families.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach, as each child and family dynamic are unique, which is why she operates from a very personal and holistic approach.
