Elevator pitch: Teens can live a life of happiness, vibrancy and success, and parents play a huge role in that process. I consult with families to accurately define and reach their teenager’s educational (and social) goals. I shift how traditional markers are conceptualized and measured by focusing on the specific nuances of the child. I have a weekly educational/parenting column in the LA Times, contribute to the Huffington Post and produce other related media content as well.
