Developing and implementing individualized reading intervention programs for students according to their strengths and needs is Kimberly’s passion.

She also strives to rebuild a student’s self-esteem that may have been adversely affected by a learning difference. Kimberly works with families and schools to provide dyslexic students the educational accommodations they require, and she equips older students with the skills to be their own advocate.
