Shonna Riggs, MSW

"The path to inclusion begins with acceptance, tolerance, and understanding the unique needs that are shared beliefs, proving we are more alike than we are different."

Shonna has a passion for advocating for families to ensure children with special needs receive the resources and supports needed to be fully included. She joined the KIT team in August of 2021 as an Inclusion Support Specialist, where she helps drive the KIT mission of providing opportunities to fully include everyone, regardless of their unique challenges.

She received her MSW from Brescia University in Kentucky and is a Certified Social Worker and military veteran with more than 10 years of experience working with families and youths with special needs. Outside of her work with KIT, Shonna is a volunteer in her community, providing case management for youth and young adults struggling to find mental health support.

In her free time, she enjoys writing poetry, reading, and listening to music.

KIT Inclusionista since 2021
