I’m Kat Fulton, MM, MT-BC, and I’m delighted to present this exciting website to you.
As Founder, it is my responsibility to make sure that healthcare professionals who take and teach our courses feel honored to do so. I am fully dedicated to providing the absolute best experience for you here online.
With every new conference I attend, with every new healthcare professional friend I make, I realize more and more the brilliance of my colleagues. Therefore, helping my colleagues put their brilliant ideas on the web is an honor and privilege.
Here’s why I *love* doing what I’m doing here: I would dare to say that learning by video can be even more effective than learning in person, for some. Imagine working through the course materials when YOU want to.
Imagine replaying that one highly actionable technique, and implementing into a session… 5 minutes after viewing the video.
Imagine informing yourself of new research from a video, and using the fresh knowledge immediately to write a winning grant to serve the kids with whom you work.
Imagine the opportunity to replay the sign language, marketing plan, wellness pep-talk, reimbursement steps, and co-treating tips as many times as you’d like, whenever and where ever you are in the world.
The best part for me personally is that I serve merely as the vehicle for leaders to package their expertise online. This site is just another site dedicated to advocating for our clients and showing the world how important music therapy is for healthcare.
