Hello Health Care Providers, Parents and Eductors!
We didn’t want you to feel left and created a page JUST for you!
The Opti-Mom Philosophy
We believe in putting Kids FIRST!! They are involved in every aspect of our programming including program development. We believe and respect that EVERY Child has a unique voice – we LOVE helping them find THEIR voice!
Laurel has been working with Children her entire life. What began as a passion has flourished into an organization that supports Children, Mind, Body and Spirit. From individual Life Coaching for Kids to building and delivering unique programming in many communities, Laurel continues to look for opportunities that support her passion.
Laurel graduated from Brock University with a Degree in Child Studies. She obtained her Adult Teaching Designation from Sheridan College in 2006, graduating as a Sheridan Scholar. She has been a Life Coach for over 20 years working with Families to support them Mind, Body and Spirit. In 2012 she made the BOLD decision to go back to school to obtain her Masters in Education. Let the application process begin!
She was nominated for a prestigious DOVE award for Moms supporting the community through her work with her LMAO Program in the summer of 2012!
Why We Use Skype
Parents OFTEN ask us why we use Skype (video chatting) in lieu of home or office visits. Working with Children is a very, very delicate process and because Children are so sensitive to many factors including any new situations, environments or people, Laurel has found that Skype allows Children to feel greater levels of comfort as they can work within their home environment (when they are relaxed they share and open up more).
