From Preschool Teacher to Mediator

I'm so grateful to Divorce Coach Lisa Lissar for having me on her show! The more I work with her, the more I WANT to work with her.

It was a blast discussing the unexpected turns life can take. We talked about how you can end up somewhere completely different than planned, sometimes challenging, but ultimately landing exactly where you were meant to be.

If you've ever had a major pivot (or two!), you might relate to my journey – from mediator to preschool teacher (yes, really!) and back to mediation. Check out the clip to hear me share my story.

This is a story I've been trying to figure out how to tell and somehow, I think I finally pulled it all together, what do you think?

Lisa's point is that divorce is something we never want to happen and don't plan on happening, but it creates opportunities to perhaps find the place you were meant to be. In my life, it was less about divorce (I'm still married) and more about jobs and recessions and the need to just keep swimming (thanks Dorrey , one of my favorite quotes to say to myself!).

P.S. Huge thanks again to Lisa for the insightful conversation!

Early Childhood Education

While raising my family, I took a break from meditation to become an Infant-Toddler Teacher. In addition to my required education in Early Childhood Education, I was accepted into California's yearlong fellowship for the Program for Infant-Toddler Care. I use the information I learned here to help us focus on the children in the conflict. 

Pet Custody Mediator

Who keeps the dog after a separation? Well, it is kind of up to the dog. In this course, I learned from Karis Nafte about dog behavior and what cues to look for when making decisions about who keeps the dog. 

In addition to this course, I have mediated claims involving pets in Small Claims Court. I have come to rely on my restorative justice training to find meaningful resolutions when our furry family members become the center of a dispute.

Dependency Court Mediation

I mediate parenting plans for the Los Angeles Courts. To work for SCFM, I completed an advanced meditation course in family meditation. 

I highly value the input I receive from these experienced mediators as well as family and dependency court judges and attorneys. This lets me and YOU know that my work is high quality and legally enforceable.
