Having taught in Hawaii, Pa., and Florida public schools, and raised by a single parent, I can relate to the many challenges parents are facing today. In my effort to continually support and encourage all parents, I was led to share my knowledge and expertise with my latest book, "Champion Parenting: Giving Your Child a Competitive Edge". In this book, I encourage and empower parents (Preschool-college age) with coaching skills and a positive mind set to prepare, plan, and persevere during each stage of a child's growth and development.
In addition to spending time with my husband and son, I enjoy all sports, writing, decorating, travel and nutrition. I hold a M.Ed. degree from California University of Pa., and currently serve as President and Founder of Champion Parenting, Inc. a 501 (c) 3, nonprofit.
