About Us


Heather and Joe We are parent educators and family coaches. With three young adult children, we have lived through a lot of what we preach. Like you, we make mistakes, we yell at our kids, they yell at us, our cat meows, the dog barks, and we pick up and start all over again. We adore our kids, love being parents, being married, and playing in that exciting, scary, and rewarding playground we call family. We'd love to hear from you!
