About Me

About

This is me and my beautiful bouncing baby boy! Before my little guy arrived I earned a Bachelor's degree in Special Education Birth to 21 as well as my Masters in Education. For six years I worked as an Early Interventionist serving children and families from birth to age three. Much of the work I did with children was actually by coaching parents and childcare providers on strategies to use with their children to help their development progress. After 5 years of giving parenting advice to others, I became a parent myself when I gave birth to Kian. Hence the name "Parenting Expert to Mom". What I learned through this experience is the strategies that I was using as an Early Interventionist work well with ALL children.
