I have known Dr. Katherine Kimes for over 10 years. She is one of the most remarkable educators I know working with children, adolescents and young adults with acquired brain injuries. Dr. Kimes is an excellent speaker, teacher, personal coach, and consultant. She brings a unique set of skills that are rarely found in other professionals.

Katherine Kimes is a gifted writer who has that rare talent of being able to communicate complex information in a way that immediately makes sense to readers. As an expert in the effects of acquired brain injury on a student’s ability to learn and function in school, she is a terrific resource for both educators and parents.

Dr. Katherine Kimes has presented at special education conferences in North Dakota. On both occasions the audience has been moved by her personal experience of sustaining a severe TBI at the age of 16. Conference evaluations by the participants revealed superior satisfaction with the information presented by Dr Kimes on the importance of system change within the educational system.

Dr. Katherine Kimes is a powerful voice and advocate for individuals with ABI. Building upon her own personal experiences sustaining a severe TBI, and climbing all the way from relearning to walk through to achievement of the highest degree in her field, she has become a gifted presenter and author. Her grounding in personal experience also makes her a respected consultant for local and state agencies seeking to improve systems of services for the population of children and adults with ABI.
