Day job/ career:
Currently serving as the Midland County Great Start Collaborative Director
How did you become involved with Our Community Listens?
A close friend and mentor recommended that class to me…. the rest is history. We are delighted to bring this to the Great Start Collaborative in the near future!
What is your hope for Our Community Listens?
We will be providing this class to Great Start Collaborative partners and parents in hopes of improving communication with teaching teams, teacher/parent, and community service teams.
How do you most often find yourself using what you learned in CST?
I have two teenagers at home and I am constantly practicing listening skills and confrontation skills with them. It really does help them to solve their own problems and I become more confident with their abilities as we prepare to send them out into the world!
Who is your favorite superhero and why?
My husband IS my superhero! He is constantly looking for ways to make our life better, he is an outstanding communicator, and he makes me a better person!
