More about Leslie

Leslie is an Early Childhood Educator and was Associate Certified Trainer for Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (Cornell University)for 15 years. Over the last 30 years, her work in Child Development has given her many opportunities to help families adopt positive parenting strategies in this ever-changing world. Working for the past 16 years in a local hospital with the Psychiatric Department as a Child and Youth Worker, it was obvious that families need more resources to manage. The expectations are many, the hours are long, our schools are bound by larger system requirements, and our children are feeling the stress. Leslie offers Parent Coaching that will give parents and families some ideas and changes that will make their home the way they want it to be. We all need a little bit of help and guidance as we work together to raise happy, healthy kids who want to play and compete and keep up with their peers.
Leslie has had the opportunity to speak at schools, and at parent gatheringsas well as to parents of athletes.
She is a published author, a middle child of 9 and the proud mother of 4 grown children, that combined with her work experience provides her with stories and strategies that will hopefully enhance your parenting journey.
