Heather has devoted her working life to families and children. She has worked tirelessly as a Nanny, Special Educator, Healer and Educational Consultant and the Ambassador to Canada for Mini Me Yoga.
As a Nanny for many years she got to know what things all families have in common in terms of needs and stressors. As a Special Educator working with children in poverty, she saw first-hand the effects of childhood trauma on children living in poverty and also kids who have learning disabilities.
The one thing Heather has seen is that all children have the same needs-to be respected, loved and understood. It’s that simple and that complicated, as each child is specific in their needs.
Working on the issue of Anxiety with both adults and children pulls all of the issues into focus.
