The Family Grove started with the intention to link arms and connect families looking for holistic community resources. We share a common purpose in strengthening the mental and physical health of the families in the community.
Join our passion for cultivating a space where everyone feels safe and welcome.
As an Early Childhood Educator I loved researching the very best information for my family but raising a family in south Florida twenty seven years ago was tricky because there were very few resources for our family’s needs. I was constantly researching and attending conferences to network with other like minded parents, educators and cutting edge physicians that could support the wellness of our family.
It was not an easy journey but I found a few people that led me to keep hoping and keep looking!In the last twenty years I have met some of the most brilliant and enthusiastic people in my community.
At the Family Grove we will use our talents as communicators to support others and use our social skills to
bring people closer together.

Being a mom and teacher are some of the most important roles in my life and I love them fiercely.
Learning the principles of Positive Parenting has changed how I view all relationships in my life and I would love to share this philosophy with more parents to help cope with the many parenting challenges we face today.
I want to take families on my journey raising two young girls to be kind, independent thinkers, who love to learn, while providing families with tools and activities to guide them on their own parenting voyage.I am here to supply you with new opportunities to connect, nurture, and empower your children in exciting new ways.

My journey to mindfulness started around 2009. I lost my hero, my grandfather who was a major influence in my life. I started to search for more meaning and continued to ask questions that lead me to mindfulness and meditation. It was the first time that I really recognized (became aware) of my thoughts, feelings, and mind body connection thru simply breathing. I wanted to learn more and dove into the practice.
I am honored to be a part of Meditate School of Mindfulness as a Master of Mindfulness Mentor, Mindful Family Mentor, Parent & Teen Mentor, Practitioner of Sound Healing, Yoga Nidra Teacher and to share this knowledge with you.
