Practice Makes Parents. Let me be your coach!
I love working with parents on behalf of their children! My work with families spans more than 20 years and includes the roles of nanny, preschool teacher, preschool director, parent education instructor, and, of course, PCI Certified Parent Coach®. The job that has contributed to my experience and expertise in the most delightful and joyful way is my work as a mama of two amazing children who are now teenagers! My mission has been to raise my children to be compassionate, creative, and competent people, and I hope to help other parents do the same for their children.
In addition to my work as a PCI Certified Parent Coach®, I am also the Learning Center Director at Edmonds Lutheran Church, I am a Parent Advisor for Olympic View Montessori, and a member of the Pre-K Advisory Committee for the Edmonds School District. I am also proud to have been a substitute instructor for Course I in the PCI Parent Coaching Certification program, and I have been a guest on Gloria DeGaetano’s podcast: Parent Well in our Digital World. You can also find my contribution in Parent Success Stories: Positive Family Changes Through the PCI Coaching Model.
The beauty of the coaching process is that each opportunity is unique to the coach and client. I love to work with parents on ANY challenges they are experiencing, though I do have particular expertise and experience in the following areas:
- Military Families
- Behavior and Discipline
- Child Stress
- Nutrition and Sleep
- Learning Concerns/School Experience
- Social Media/Screen-time Concerns
- Parent-Child Communication
- Parent Stress/Self Care
- Special Needs
