Who I am

I am an educator, presenter, and parenting consultant devoted to helping adults make sense of the children in their care. I use Dr. Gordon Neufeld’s natural childhood development model where attachment is the foundation of the emotional, physical, and social growth of the child.

I graduated with a degree in Education and Psychology from the University of Manitoba, and have worked as a teacher, learning consultant, and family counsellor/mentor for over 25 years.  I reside in Nelson British Columbia with my family and consciously work at creating an attachment village for the children in my community.
