A little bit about me…
The journey to get me here, as a trauma healing coach for women, has been full of twists & turns. Throughout every stage of my life and career, I’ve always enjoyed helping people. Early in my career, helping people meant working with children. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Human Resources with a concentration in Early Childhood Development and a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education.
I’ve worked with kids in many settings, from a nonprofit offering full-time free childcare for single mothers, to volunteer work in Head Start programs. I also taught primary school (kindergarten, first, and second grade) in Title 1 schools where many of my students were children with difficult home lives and dealing with the consequences of living in poverty.
While teaching I began to see a lot of similarities between what my students needed to be successful kids and what I had been learning for myself in my recovery. (Things like how to feel safe, loved, and empowered). I began implementing proven brain science strategies programs for social and emotional learning in my classroom with young children. I was amazed at the miracles I began seeing in my students using techniques such as role-playing and self-regulation strategies for coping and connection. It was so much fun to see their transformation!
