Gigi feels that she can help make a difference in people’s lives and truly impact the way we discipline ourselves and others, which in turn will strengthen the way we educate our children. In 2011, Gigi was a stay-at-home mom of a two year old boy and a newborn girl. Despite having studied education and counseling, she was feeling exhausted and overwhelmed with motherhood and found her discipline skills to be inconsistent. She felt lost. She knew deep down that she could do better for her family, but was not sure how to get there. She began seeking new tools to help raise her children and found Conscious Discipline® and thus began her journey.

She took a year of classes with Mindy Becker, Master Certified Instructor, and in 2012 began to learn from Dr. Becky Bailey at the Summer Institutes. When her children were 3 and 5 she rejoined the workforce at Grow With Us Academy, a leading preschool in modeling Conscious Discipline®. She helped run the day-to-day responsibilities, parent meetings and co-presented parent workshops with Mindy. Being a part of a school whose foundation was Conscious Discipline® continued to evolve and strengthen her journey.

By living consciously and implementing the skills learned through Conscious Discipline®, both Gigi and her husband completely changed the way they were raising their children, which in turn transformed the entire family dynamic. She saw the power of Conscious Discipline® and the huge impact it had in her home life and in the lives of the children at the preschool. In 2015 she made the decision to give back to others the life changing gift she had been given and became a Certified Instructor. Since then, she has continued to grow in her journey by offering Conscious Discipline® to parents, teachers and administrators and is continuously learning by attending CD conferences, as every day is a new opportunity to be better.
