You don't have to be perfect to be the perfect parent!

Introducing: Raising kids with LOVE

First and foremost I am a Mom.  One of my true passions over the last 12 years has been supporting parents in their journey of raising children.  I speak weekly at two local hospitals, Indiana University Health West and Indiana University North and have been a guest speaker at numerous Mom’s groups, preschools, and churches.  As a Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner who has worked in the pediatric field for 30 years, I certainly have some book knowledge, but just as important, I have had 25 years and counting of raising 4 kids.  Parenting is a journey, and I have been on that wonderful journey for many years.

Join me and we will talk about common questions, not so common questions, and share the joys and frustrations of parenthood.  Parenting does not have to be difficult, but often it is not like a Hallmark movie!  Learning together, laughing together, sharing stories, and discussing the old and new when it comes to being a parent, that is what Raising kids with LOVE hopes to bring you.

Take a breath, enjoy the joyful moments of each day, and remember you don’t have to be perfect to be the perfect parent.
