With over 30 years of kid experience under her belt, Celia Kibler, co-founder of Funfit Family Fitness, found there was not enough out there to help kids face the challenges that life puts in front of them. Often referred to as the "Baby Whisperer", Celia's innate ability to know how kids think, has brought her into a new direction and vision as she continues to develop her passion for children. Celia is now available for Parent Coaching (either private or group), offers many ways to obtain free advice through her personal website and her FB Live broadcasts and FB Group, or sign up for a 15 minute free consultation through the coaching tab on her website.

As drama therapists, their original techniques utilize theatrical intrigue, role play and creative arts adventures to keep children engaged, excited and invested in the process.
