A life-long teacher helping you navigate the difficulties of parenting. Inspiring you to have a more connected partnership. Encouraging you to be proud of who you are and more enthusiastic about your life. 

I thought I was going to have the kid thing in the bag, after all, I was a dang good elementary school teacher for many years and children loved me. 

So, imagine my surprise when my own child started hitting me at three-years-old and later began talking back. Imagine my horror when my two kids were arguing (I used to have twenty-five students all day on their best behavior). Imagine my disbelief when mindful, peaceful, and calm me began yelling at my kids. Was this the Mama that I wanted to be? Heck NO! So, I did what I do best … I studied hard and started teaching.

I became a certified Positive Discipline Teacher. I took classes in Mindfulness. I grew my awareness and spiritual self so big that my home-life became fun, enjoyable and easier. Not only did my relationship with my children improve by using my new-found tools, but my marriage became better, my friendships blossomed and my stress decreased. Now, instead of teaching children, I teach adults (‘cause you can take me out of the classroom, but I’ll never stop teaching!). Want to know more? Read More in the About Section!
