What People are Saying

S. Price, K-12 Teacher, West Vancouver

"The owner of The Mother Corp. is a dynamic and engaging presenter who brings a calming vibe and a wealth of knowledge to her work. In her professional development session with me and my school colleagues, she took an erudite and research-driven approach to helping us explore how we can better understand and support our students as they navigate the complexities they are facing in their personal lives. In the session she led with my colleagues on hidden abuse, she was able to first get us centered and in the right frame of mind to explore the challenging topic, give us a background in the academic literature and brain science, and then explore the nexus between her work and ours through examples and case studies drawn from the discussion. Whether you are a school, social service organization, non-profit or business,  The Mother Corp. would be an able guide to helping develop organizational competencies that improve how an organization supports its people in a meaningful and trauma-informed way."
