Educator & Parenting Consultant
What could I tell you about me?
Well, I'm originally from Germany, married to my best friend, Keenan, and currently living with him, our two year old daughter, Kaylee, and our dog, Sarge, in Guam, a tiny but pretty Island in the middle of the pacific.
I grew up in a small town in the western part of Germany.
Even though you wouldn't have guessed when you met me back then my childhood wasn't as happy as it seemed.
Even though I had every toy I could have asked for I often felt unheard, misunderstood and not good enough.
When I got older I swore myself to never make a child feel that way.
After graduating school and a few years of studying architecture, English, German and religion I finally decided that that wasn’t the right way for me.
So I became an Educator and worked several years in a German Kindergarten with parents and children between the age of 11 month and 6 years.
While working there I realized how difficult and challenging life can be for toddler parents. I saw many moms struggle when their toddlers threw tantrums, when they felt bad for yelling at their little ones, when they couldn’t meet expectations others had for them, when they couldn’t understand what their toddlers tried to tell them and when they felt unhappy.
That was the moment when I realized I wanted to change that.
I wanted moms to enjoy this precious time of toddlerhood without feeling overwhelmed. My goal was and is to help moms understand their little ones, and toddlers to be heard. I wanted both, happy moms AND happy toddlers.
Even though I knew what I wanted to do, I still had no idea how to undertake it, so I went on with my life.
Due to my husbands work we have to move frequently and I found myself working with kids from different countries and cultures.
Although cultures are often very different, I was surprised that the moms' struggles were the same.
After moving to Guam and having my own little girl going through toddlerhood, I finally decided it was time to find a way to do what I love, and support moms getting a better understanding for their toddlers.
And now I’m finally able to help moms and toddlers all around the world, from the comfort of their homes.
I want to share with you what I've learned through experience, and professionalized with the support of great mentors.
