Child Behavior Specialist
I grew up in Connecticut, the middle child of a big family. My sisters and brother are great friends of mine. My husband, Joe, is my best friend and an amazing life partner. Together, we have 3 great kids, and a sweet, blind dog and a hilarious seeing eye cat who tries to help her! I am passionate about ending child abuse and creating healthy families! I teach Positive Discipline and Redirecting Children's Behavior to support parents and teachers, and to provide tools and options. I am working toward instructor certification for a restorative justice process for educational agencies called Discipline That Restores. I don't have any classes scheduled this spring while I finish up school, but check my website for courses beginning in May 2014. After many years away from school, I returned this year, and I am loving it! I am a graduate student at SDSU, working on my MS in Counseling. I am an advocate for social justice, and equitable access to education for all students. We put on a great conference in February 2013, supporting Students, Saving Lives! For undergraduate degree, I attended USD in San Diego, and went to England to attend Oxford University as an exchange student.
