I am a child development specialist with a BS in Human Development and Family Studies and an M. Ed. in Organization and Management, specializing in non-profits and learning theory. Beside certification in 2 states as a public school teacher, I am certified by Oregon Center for Career Development in Childhood Care and Education as an Oregon Registry Master Trainer. I am qualified to train in all 10 Core Knowledge Categories.
My profession provides me almost daily opportunities to work with children of all ages and adults in instructional roles. Since 2001, I have provided over 250 hours of training all over the State and almost as many hours teaching credited courses at community college. Many workshops have filled to capacity. My workshops are dynamic and interactive, full of clear information, fun activities and individualized trouble-shooting. This carries through to my one-on-one interactions, where I can provide insight, compassion and guided encouragement for growth.
