Lina Brasil & Rebecca Fisher
Lina Brasil has a degree in Early Childhood Education and Care and has been in the ECE field for over 17 years, and as a Supported Child Development Consultant with Kinsight since April 2019. I have always been fascinated by how young children learn, especially from one another. The opportunity to engage in reflective practice, advocate for children and support families as an educator is one that I approach with passion, curiosity & humility. Looking forward to more years of wonder, creativity, joy, dialogue & discovery. Rebecca Fisher has been working with Kinsight since September 2020, with most of my work experience being in Infant Development and now as a Supported Child Development Consultant. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree, majoring in psychology and I am currently completing my master's of counselling. I have a passion for supporting individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities and hope to help create more inclusive, accepting, and playful settings for young people.
