Splendid Spark

Grow you. Help them.

If mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.

Are you drowning in to-do’s, should’s, and worries? Have you lost connection to your sense of self? Truth is, when YOU thrive, your children and partner do too. I help bright mamas of gifted/2e children shift from drowning to rising tide.

Self Care

Create a strategy to stay connected to yourself and model healthy habits for your family. Everyone benefits.

Learn & Grow

Learn what works for you and your family knowing it’s a marathon not a sprint.


You don’t have to do it all by yourself. We’re in this together.


Get an overview of the gifted/twice exceptional journey so you know your options.


There’s a lot of information out there. Find what you need, when you need it.



Say no to the status quo by caring for yourself and speaking up for your kids.

Make Yourself a Priority.

Everyone benefits.

You wear all the hats.

And carry the backpack, and snack bag, while swimming, in stormy water! You take care of everything for everyone, so there’s no time left for you. I’ll show you how to lighten your load AND calm the storm, so you and your family can enjoy your life.

Life is a work in progress.

Life with differently wired kids is all about finding what works and ditching what doesn’t. That goes for you too. Some hats don’t fit. And you don’t need to weigh yourself down with everyone else’s stuff. Focus on what matters without getting lost in the shoulds and what if’s.

Small changes make the biggest difference.

Your energy, response, and mindset matter more than you realize. When you’re grounded and connected to your inner strength, everyone shifts accordingly. All things change when you do. (Even though I’m taking off this hat, reading is THE best. Learning + together time = Awesome.)
