As the parent of neurodivergent children, Kate is especially attuned to the needs of students with different learning styles and will guide students and families through the different types of support services and learning environments available. She enjoys working with students on a variety of “college readiness skills” (time management, self-advocacy, etc.) to prepare them for a successful transition from high school to college and to help them reach their full potential.

A published author, Kate has been a teacher, mentor, writer and editor for the past 20 years and loves helping young people of all abilities find their voices and discover their talents.  She is currently completing her certificate in Independent Educational Consulting through the University of California, Irvine and is also a member of the Montclair Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC) and other special needs advocacy groups.  As part of her commitment to promoting greater academic accessibility, she also tutors and provides college application support to low-income students in Northern New Jersey.
