My entire life has been devoted to being a part of my family. First and foremost I was an incredible daughter to my mom and dad (according to them), and a good sister to my 3 brothers. I was also a good student who loved school. I pursued a college education, and today my enjoyment comes through the time I spend with my own children and being a big part of their educational experience. When I got married 23 years ago I focused on my new family... my husband and my children. Together, we have 5 children, ages 22 to 11. We have three boys: Cristopher 22, Cobie 14, Caleb 11 and two daughters: Brooke 19 and Meredith 15.
I have the most awesome husband and children of any woman on earth, and I really feel this way. Together, we once owned and operated a Christian boarding school for troubled teens where we were blessed to have served thousands of teenagers and parents.
My husband and I started Abundant Life Academy, a Christian boarding school for troubled teenagers. I counseled and advocated parents and youth. I also worked as a Life Coach, Admissions Director, and Family Representative. Finally, I was the co-Program Director of the Girls Academy.
I currently write articles and stories about parent coaching, family advocacy, and teen counseling. I have worked with thousands of parents and teenagers throughout my career as a parent coach. I also love and enjoy content marketing, being an author, and helping parents of troubled teens.
