COAST is a project originally created by Jennifer Katz and Michelle Kemper. Jennifer and Michelle had known each other for many years and dreamed of working together as a dynamic duo of speech therapist and occupational therapist, respectively. That dream came true when they both joined San Francisco Inclusion Network, a program that supports teachers and children in inclusive preschools across the city.

The success of Team Preschool led to the development of COAST, a beautiful new space that connects Occupational, Aerial, and Speech Therapy. This collaboration ensures the highest quality of support for the children and families they serve.
