I have been blessed to have multiple “careers” in my life. I started off in the corporate setting loving the technology field, serving customers, providing training and managing employees. After having a child, and enduring a major corporate layoff, I decided that I wanted to follow my passion of teaching and spend more time with my children.
It was then that I completed my Masters in Education and Parent Education License and began working in Early Childhood Family Education. During that process, I was blessed with a beautiful little girl! I found being a Parent Educator offered me the best of both worlds, allowing me to balance what I loved doing professionally while having the opportunity to spend special time with my children.
Forward a few years down the road to the present where I continue to love what I do and would like to expand my reach to more families that could use the support of a Parent Coach.
As a Certified Professional Coach and Licensed Parent Educator I will partner with you to determine what is working and what is not working for your family. I provide compassionate listening, tested strategies and support to make the changes you desire. I know first hand how challenging parenting can be and I also know that a little new knowledge to add to our parenting toolbox, goes a long way!
I have a Masters in Business Administration and have had over 20 years experience in leadership and project management. I also hold a Masters of Education with thirteen years of experience working for Eden Prairie Schools as a Parent Educator facilitating weekly classes with parents, providing individual family consultations as well as providing peer coaching to fellow teachers.
I reside in Minneapolis with my two children and enjoy taking part in all of their activities as well as being active outdoors: hiking, sailing and playing pickelball!
I look forward to meeting you!
