I'm So Glad is a positive and uplifting story that contains a template for healthy communication about feelings. The words validate a range of emotions that children (and adults) experience, from anger to loneliness, to sadness, to happiness. It also provides a guide to discussing these feelings, without judgment, for both the listener (child) and the reader (mentor/adult/parent) that does not patronize or criticize the child.

She has taught music at all levels, from preschool through university. As a songwriter, she has dedicated herself to creating quality songs and poetry for children.
