When Edna was first sent to a Conscious Discipline Summer Institute, she knew nothing about Conscious Discipline. By the second day, she was already hooked on the program. As a mother to young children and an educator working with young children, she felt that everything about the powers and skills simply made sense. Upon returning home, Edna immediately began applying Conscious Discipline in her personal life and as a member of her program’s implementation team. Conscious Discipline has influenced every aspect of Edna’s life and made her more present, responsive, and reflective, profoundly impacting all of her relationships. Understanding the brain state model, powers, and skills has been life-changing for Edna’s family, and she is passionate about sharing this information with others.
Edna works with and trains both parents and educators. She specializes in Infant Toddler, Early Head Start, and Head Start. She is also a Poverty Coach and holds her Family Service Credential. She has a passion for helping others and is committed to strengthening families.×
