I've spent more than a fifteen years working with children & their families in a variety of environments, including most recently as a Parent Educator for a nonprofit in the Seattle area. Before that I was in an administrative role at a preschool/child care center. I have both my BA and MA in Psychology where I focused the majority of my efforts learning about pregnancy, birth, & early childhood development through the lens of both inclusivity and holistic growth & development. I believe there needs to be more support, education, & empowerment for parents from day one- and I absolutely love cultivating a safe space for that to occur as not only an educator, but as facilitator of both personal growth & community . In my spare time I actively read, listen to, and search for a greater understanding of how we can collectively carry, birth, raise, teach, and support the next generation & at the same time learn to trust our own inner wisdom.
And when I'm not listening to my favorite podcasts you can usually find me hanging out with my husband & our two pups cooking, exploring, or spending time with my family. I also love music & expressing my creativity through photography and art of all mediums.
I'd love to hear from you, so please feel free to connect with me through email or social media!
