About the Event
All parents want to bring their best selves to their parenting and professional lives, yet the challenges and stress many families experience trying to balance work and family issues can impact job satisfaction and performance. At work, parents have many balls in the air, and often spend a significant amount of work time and energy worrying about, and dealing with, family issues. At home, they want the time they spend with their children to be calm, connected and enjoyable. Effective Parents-productive employees.
Meet Our Expert:
Ann has been involved with The Parent Practice since 2008, starting off as a client when her daughter was 5. She joined a group after hearing rave reviews about the program from friends, and very quickly saw the positive impact that the new skills were having within her family. She saw the link between transforming family life and the work she had done in organizational transformation and wanted to learn more. She trained to become part of the Facilitation Team and has been teaching the Positive Parenting course and workshops since 2009.
"What I loved - and still love - about the course is how it empowers parents with practical skills to parent in a more effective, empathetic and connected way. Now that I have a teenager, I am well-aware that the skills learned back in 2008 continue to help me positively manage the challenges that each stage of parenting brings my way."
Born in England, and raised in Canada, Ann now lives in Westchester, NY. She studied Japanese Language and Literature and Spanish Studies at the University of Toronto. Her work life began as an English teacher in Japan, followed by 6 years working for Mitsubishi Corporation in Toronto. She earned her MBA from Canada’s Richard Ivey School of Business, which led to a move to London. In July 2013, her family moved to New York where she has been teaching courses and workshops in Westchester & Fairfield Counties as well as in NYC.
Ann loves learning languages and as she speaks Spanish, she has been able to translate The Parent Pratice work into Spanish and teaches positive parenting skills to moms in the Hispanic community at 5 Steps to Five in Port Chester, NY and at Neighbors Link in Mt. Kisco, NY. She is on the Board of 5 Steps to Five, and served as co-chair of Heard in Rye, currently serving on their committee.
