Speaking To Schools & Corporations
What I do within the school setting is exciting and varied. I offer workshops at your school for your parents and staff. My approach is unique in that I take the whole family into account: the parents individually, the partnerships that support the child (regardless of whether the child is with two parents, a parent and a care-giver, extended family, etc.), and complete tools to raise responsible children in a loving and emotionally supportive way.
My workshops are fun, informative, and interactive. Everyone walks away equipped with tools to use immediately.
I provide comprehensive options to corporate clients. I invite you to get in touch with me to discuss your interest in what I have to offer your business and employees. I work closely with corporate clients to develop workshops that meet the needs of your employees.
Without a doubt, calm and "in control" parents make happier, more productive employees. I speak on topics that support the people within your business in their role as a parent and within the workplace. The skills parents take away from my workshops transfer effectively to work situations.
I look forward to hearing from you and having the opportunity to talk to you in more detail about what I do and how we can deliver it!

"I attended a PAC lecture at Wedgwood COOP a few months back. You were the fabulous guest speaker. I was inspired by your energy. Your ability to make time for your fitness goals is what I took home that evening. I have since applied this to my life and am feeling GREAT!!!! Thank you for the much needed nudge. More importantly the words to make the nudge stick in our busy household. Mom is officially back on the "to do" list." Wedgewood Cooperative Preschool, Fall 2011 Creating Healthy Families
"I just wanted to send a quick note saying how much I enjoyed your talk at St. Catherine School this past Monday. I am really looking forward to your book.
