Kathleen Nelson-SimleyKathleen Nelson-Simley

Kathleen Nelson-Simley is owner of KNS Learning Solutions. Working remotely from her home office in Lincoln, NE she has served as a trainer for All Stars since 1999. However, her experience with All Stars started long before this. During her 13 years of service to a non-profit substance abuse prevention organization, she developed, trained and supported numerous prevention youth initiatives that earned national recognition. She began working with Dr. Hansen during the early stages of All Stars' development. Created as a school-based curriculum, Kathleen believed All Stars could be effective in community-based settings as well. She was the first to teach All Stars to youth in community settings. Just as she thought, the program worked and kids loved it! From there, Kathleen took off with All Stars! She developed the teacher training program and has trained thousands of teachers in hundreds of schools and community organizations. Her enthusiasm for and belief in All Stars is contagious and her insight on how to make it work in any situation has not only helped thousands of teachers, but also benefitted thousands of kids. She is the friendly resource you need to make All Stars work for you.
