I am a nationally recognized parenting expert with twenty-five years of experience. I’ve heard every parenting story out there – and yes, parents consistently try to stump me (without much luck!). I am a professionally trained Adlerian life coach as well as a skilled teacher, drawing on my background in child development, human psychology, family dynamics and expertise in problem solving.

While I am knowledgeable in my field, I am also compassionate and understanding. I get it. I raised five children, consistently drawing on my own experience as a mom, which creates a very genuine and empowering connection to my audience. This trusting connection enables those around me to take the steps to create change.

Rest assured that when you book me, your audience will be engaged from start to finish and they will leave with information they can take home, test out and apply immediately to family life.
