Mari-Ann Kehler, Director, FRED Conference

Kate Movius was my first choice when our community needed “special needs & safety” training. She collaborated with me to develop a program that brought together first responders, family members, self advocates and school staff to create a dialogue and advance our community awareness on this subject. My expectations were soon exceeded! What Kate did, in fact, was deliver a program that was engaging, fun (!), informative, and action-oriented. We all left with tools and skills we greatly needed. What also occurred thanks to her was the creation of an ongoing community effort for continuous progress to benefit the safety of our special needs loved ones.
This is a topic one does not typically associate with fun. It’s a scary topic! But Kate managed to create an environment of interactive, hands-on experience – and lo and behold, it was a very enjoyable event. We left smarter, more connected as a community and relieved to have information we can use.
