I have been mediating Parenting Plans since June 2012. I also mediate in the Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice mediations. I have extensive experience in these systems on a personal level as a former foster parent and a professional level as a 'family-professional' helping families to navigate these systems. This work came as a result of having to access these systems as a means of getting mental health services for my daughter. I am the author of the book, "Heather's Rage" which chronicles this journey. I am a life-long learner. I continue to develop my skills through various educational, training, and networking opportunities.
