The Story & Tailored Approach Behind
Parenting by Design

I’m a mom who has been where you are right now — battling overwhelm, guilt, and frustration. 

I had a difficult childhood and my two kids are super strong-willed. Despite my struggles, I learned how to build a happy home. I want to help you do the same. 


I blend best practices from a variety of disciplines into my life as a mom and my work with parents: 


  • Being an athlete and coach revealed how nutrition, sleep, mindfulness, and self-talk impact performance.


  • In my work with at-risk kids, I learned to get cooperation through playfulness and empathy.


  • As an actor, I honed my facial expressions, body language, and tone of voice to communicate.

These skills – and others – also apply to parenting. After all, parenting is a performance endeavor.

As a Certified Parent Educator with a Masters in Teaching from Brown University, I have seen that parents need personalized help. That’s why I created Parenting by Design – to give each family the specific ingredients they need to thrive.

I have helped hundreds of struggling parents and I want to help you, too. Let’s get started!

With love,
