I specialize in supporting families raising children with birth defects and medical needs. Families fighting for a child's survival often don’t get the much needed emotional support. If you care for a child with medical needs I am glad you discovered Hand in Hand Parenting and I would love to hear from you.
I was born with a rare malformation myself and had to undergo many medical treatments growing up. Imagining how helpful Hand in Hand tools would have been for me and my family, I dedicate my Hand in Hand teaching to families who have children with medical needs.I work with parents, patient organizations, and NGOs worldwide.
Growing up in Germany and living in New York City, I enjoy teaching in German and English. Professionally, I have 12 years program management experience in the field of disability and global advocacy, my education includes a German social work degree and a Masters in Public Administration from the City University of New York.
Most of all, I am a mom to two amazing girls born in 2016 and 2018.
As a global advocate I strive to develop opportunities to bring these 5 listening tools into families to end all violence against children.
