Annmarie coaches parents, families, and groups, teaches mindfulness in schools, hosts events, leads online courses, and speaks to groups about the importance of mindfulness, consciousness, and presence.
First and foremost a parent, Annmarie has spent the past 18 years perfecting the art of parenting imperfectly while balancing career and relationship. Annmarie understands that the most valuable tool we have is our (relationship to) presence. She masterfully guides parents, educators, and children to help cultivate presence in every moment.
Raw and unedited by nature, Annmarie extends an invitation to everyone around her to show up as they are. She is particularly adept at supporting parents and youth to move through anger—from frustration to rage—and to transform the raw energy that feeds it into a constructive powerful force.
Decades of personal growth development and professional training awoke, refined and channeled Annmarie’s determination to radically support children, families, and educational communities.
She lives in Chicago with her partner and their blended family of five children.
