I teach parent education at a community college. I have worked with families and young children in varying capacities for close to 30 years. I was born in England and now live in Southern California with my husband. I have two daughters, both in college. I hold a Nursery Nursing Diploma, from the United Kingdom; an Associate of Arts Degree in Social Science, from Glendale Community College; a Bachelors Degree in Human Development, from Pacific Oaks College, and a Master of Science Degree in Family and Consumer Sciences, from California State University Northridge (CSUN), where my focus was Family Studies and Parent Education. My book, "Better Baby Sleep" began as the culmination project for my Masters and is a product of research and study of infant sleep, combined with knowledge I have gained through years of practical experience.
