​​​​​Practical Parent Talk

Working with families and children has been my dream ever since I was in college. I'm so grateful that I can say that I have spent all of the years since then 'Living My Dream'!  I feel called, honored and blessed to do what I do!

​I hold a Bachelors Degree in

​Child Development and was certified as a Parent Talk System Facilitator by Master Educator and Author, Chick Moorman in 2008.

​After teaching college students, parents and preschoolers for 27 wonderful years at Long Beach City College I branched out on my own in 2009 and started teaching Parent Talk Classes to adults as well as Parent Participation Classes within the Long Beach, California Community.

​More recently I have begun splitting my time between Southern California and the St. Louis, Missouri area. This arrangement allows me to conduct classes in both locations as well as afford me closer contact with our grown children and grandchildren who all live in the Midwest. I have been married to Rick,

my ​very supportive and understanding husband for nearly 36 years and together

we have raised 3 delightful, caring and responsible sons who are established

in their careers and enjoying life.

We are grandparents to two darling and lovable boys who bring us much joy!

It is my mission to encourage and support healthy family communication by empowering parents and others with practical verbal skills for raising responsible, caring and confident children.
