Kim Roe - President & Founder
Kim is married to Casey and they have 3 children, Christopher, Maggie, and Phoebe. Although Phoebe is their ticket into the Down syndrome world, Kim and Casey are no strangers to advocating. Christopher has ADHD and Celiac Disease and they have been advocating for him since he was 5 years old and they needed to overcome the stereotypes that are associated with people who have ADHD.
Kim is an electrical engineer by degree and worked as a programmer for many years before leaving that career to teach middle school math. After several years of teaching in VA, the family moved back to PA to be near family and Kim took a job at her family's company and has settled into the roll of book keeper/office manager.
Kim has previously been on the board of directors for a local soccer league as well as a different Down syndrome social group. With those groups, she has worked on fundraising, marketing, and program development. At the national level, she was a board member of the Down Syndrome Affiliates in Action and is currently a board member and the fundraising coordinator for The International Down Syndrome Coalition.
In her spare time, Kim likes to spend time with her family and play soccer!
