I have taught Early Childhood and Family Studies courses (Infant & Toddler Development, Child Development, and Parenting) at the college-level for more than
​22 years. Additionally, I am an experienced Parent Educator certified in:
​Active Parenting, Positive Discipline, Parent Project, and Nurturing ​Parenting.

I graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and earned my Master’s Degree in Education, with an emphasis in Early Childhood Studies, from Sonoma State University. Prior to teaching the adult learner, I taught preschool for twelve years.

For over a decade I have facilitated parenting groups and provided individual parent coaching (specializing in birth to eight), more recently using the parenting journal and coaching tool that I authored: Are We There Yet? Conversations to Help Navigate Parenting.  As a certified yoga instructor, I weave nourishing and restorative elements of yoga into my coaching practice.

I currently live in San Luis Obispo, California, where my husband and I have had the good fortune to raise two boys.​
