Home Keena King, Early Interventionist

“Becoming an Early Interventionist is truly a dream come true. Twelve years ago I started a job as a Special Education teacher’s assistant. I had no idea what I was walking in to. Several months later, I knew I found my career. The benefits of helping a child walk on their own, with potty training or with communication skills is priceless!”

Keen is a native of Brooklyn, NY where she received her Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree in Childhood Development Education. Since moving to Columbia she has obtained her degree from Columbia College in Intervening with At Risk Learners. She has over twenty two years of experience working with children of all ages. Keena is the proud single mother of two beautiful daughters and enjoys spending time with her girls.
