Kai is a mom of two, certified Positive Discipline parent educator, social emotional literacy trainer of teachers at Seattle Public Schools and works in special education with students who have ASD, ADD and who struggle to build behavioral, social-emotional and academic skills.
For ten years she worked as a Planned Parenthood educator, teaching sexual health classes to young people from tweens to college students. She ran the award-wining peer education program, Teen Council and facilitated countless Family Workshops aimed to help parents and kids talk about puberty and sexual decision making.
Prior work with adults includes WA state childcare staff training, sexual health classes for adults in a variety of settings including the king county jail and local women's shelters, and Planned Parenthood clinical, educational and volunteer staff training.
At the heart of Kai's work is a drive to teach kids to have the courage to follow their curiosity and show the world their inherent compassion, a hope that all children know deep down that someone's got their back, and a mission to give parents the support and tools required to be that someone for their kids.
