I've been where you are.

For over 25 years as a school social worker turned district administrator, I struggled to find solutions to bullying, punitive and disproportional discipline, student mental health issues and teacher stress. After years of wrangling various initiatives, I finally cracked the code.

My unique approach created the school transformations that I was seeking, and not just one school at a time, but all 30 of our schools received national recognition:

  • 75% reduction in suspensions

  • 99% reduction in expulsions

  • 99%tile for School Climate in the state (California Healthy Kids Survey).


My tried-and-true framework blends PBIS, Restorative Practices, and MTSS seamlessly into a simple 5-step roadmap that cuts down on problem behavior, boosts school climate, and increases the well-being of both teachers and students. No more stumbling in the dark or feeling overwhelmed about where to begin – I've got you covered.
