Amelia learned the bulk of what she knows about parenting in the context of a wonderful local drop-in moms’ group. So useful were these lessons that her new goal in life is to try to write them all down so that all parents have access to this information. A former public health communications specialist, Amelia has a master’s of public health degree and focused on community development and maternal and child health in her studies. She is pleased as punch to stay at home full time with her (now) toddler, in addition to doing writing and editing work on the side. She is also in training to become a parent coach through the Parent Coaching Institute.
