   “…Kristin Hartness and Canines for Disabled Kids really went to bat for me,” …  “Kristin guided me through the process of talking with the media.  She helped me educate the reporter and the public on what the laws were and why we were asking for them to provide a handler for Paris to attend school with Austin.”

     “I owe a lot to Kristin because she taught me how to effectively and professionally talk to the media so that there was no negative backlash to our family.”
