I am co-editor of the book Parenting with PTSD: the impact of childhood abuse on parenting. I’m a mother of two, have an ACE score of 9, and have spent nearly 20 years working in the trenches of the mental health system.

I am currently the Program Director for Milestone Manor, an adult mental health community residence recognized for its non-clinical, trauma-informed, restorative programming.

Using both my personal history and professional experience I write, speak and deliver keynote presentations and workshops on Parenting as a Survivor and Trauma-Informed Systemic Change.
