Kristi earned her BS in Special Education from Georgia College and State University and a Master’s in School Counseling from the University of West Alabama. She worked as a special educator for over 10 years in the Houston and Cobb County School Systems. After developing a love for teaching special needs children, she and her husband were blessed with their very own special needs child who was born with Down Syndrome and required therapy immediately. After realizing there was nothing in the Warner Robins area, Kristi, along with 2 other moms of special needs children and special educators, had a vision to fill this need. Therefore, SenseAbilities was born in August of 2012 and continues to serve children and families in the Middle GA area.
Founded in 2012, SenseAbilities was opened to address the needs of children in our community. As parents, we knew the challenges of running children around town for various therapies, appointments, and activities. Our goal is to provide the utmost therapy in one nurturing and caring environment.
We strive to offer the best therapy for your child so they can achieve their fullest potential! Our therapists have years of education and experience as well as plenty of love and compassion to share!
