About me

I have a bachelor of science degree in engineering and earned my real-life Ph.D. in child behavior while raising and homeschooling my five children who required creative interventions due to special needs. I'm still an engineer at heart, but now I solve different problems. Over the years working with numerous children/students and my own five children, I've developed a lot of strategies to bring the best out of any child. Instead of engineering technical systems, I now engineer practical strategies to empower children to live beyond their limitations and dispositions and be all that they can be. I refer to this as transforming a “diamond in the rough” to the brilliant gem.

Why I homeschool

I have homeschooled our five children since our first child was little (currently expecting our sixth child). I chose this education format because I wanted to utilize my expertise and success in bringing my numerous tutoring students from C to A over the years, and my ability to bring the best out of a child. I love working with children and creating individual curricula that meet a child exactly where he/she is. I now use all of this expertise to help other children and parents through my company Harmonious Clan and my book. 

Being an author

My book is called “Outcast to Outstanding — The practical guide to understanding and addressing the drivers of your child's behavior.” It teaches practical strategies to transform the “rough diamond” into the true gem that is the real child. 

Many with great potential are masked by behavior struggles (overwhelmed, lack of focus, disorganized, defiant, etc.). These children can be mistaken as a “problem.” Only when we polish away the roughness on the surface of the rock can the internal beauty shine through, revealing the gem. But behaviors are only the tip of the iceberg — you can't fix behaviors until you address the underlying causes of behaviors beneath the waterline. My book reveals the underlying causes beneath the waterline and explains step-by-step exactly how to address them, so you can make lasting behavioral transformations and transform your child from a rough diamond to the true gem. 

My hobbies

Outside of homeschooling and helping other parents and children through my company, I enjoy spending time hiking on trails and outdoor activities with my family.  

My mantra

Every child has the potential to achieve great things; our job is to find the key to unlock it.
