Why me.

I've lived life raising a neurodiverse child.
I've been overwhelmed navigating the special education arena while watching my bright and capable child struggle daily in school.
I've faced the caregiving challenges as a business leader and working parent.
And I've been advising, educating, coaching, and partnering with working parents along with supporting the companies that want to retain them for over two decades.

The options.

Your child's individual needs, your work/life demands, and your strategies and resources will determine the solutions that will best meet you where you are in the process.
Whether a comprehensive special education program or monthly advising, coaching, and advocacy support for parents, or learning sessions and coaching for employers, the goal is to address and support the realities and needs facing working parents.
