Certified Holistic Family Consultants
Florida, USA. Specialty: Early Parenting
Jen is the wife of a space geek and homeschooling mom to two little ones. She knew when she became a mom that she wanted to parent differently than she experienced growing up. She read the usual books, took classes on birth and breastfeeding, and set out to Do Parenting Right. Then she was blessed with an intense, challenging, incredible little person who didn’t do anything the way the books said he would! Jen’s early parenting journey was difficult and emotional. She was fortunate to find supportive community that helped her adapt to her son’s needs, and when she found Consciously Parenting things really began to shift in her family and in her relationships with her children and her partner. Consciously Parenting gave her the tools and framework to grow, heal, and connect with herself and her son, and to respond instead of react in intense, emotionally heated moments. As Jen has found more joy and connection in parenting, she has felt called to support other families doing this work to heal and grow, especially families of young children. When she’s not building with Lego or making another batch of dino nuggets, Jen enjoys travel, scuba diving, knitting, and ballet. Jen is a certified Holistic Family Consultant through the Consciously Parenting Project’s 2 year training program.

Oregon, USA. Specialty: Pre-teens and Teens
Rachel lives in Oregon with her 12 year old son. She joined the Consciously Parenting family in 2013. This began her process of repairing her relationship with her son and finding a more conscious way to parent. In her own journey, she was raised by an authoritarian parent and practiced this as a school teacher, but when this began to break down in her own parenting she decided to explore other ways. Since beginning, she has radically shifted the way she works with all people, using the consciously parenting methods that are both inclusive and respectful, honoring everyone no matter their age or status. She completed the 2 year training and is excited to hold space and share experiences with others.

Pam Leo, Connection Parenting
Pam Leo is an independent scholar in human development, a parent educator, a certified childbirth educator, a doula, a parent, and a grandparent. She is the author of the book Connection Parenting.
“My journey has been and continues to be a wondrous one. While raising my two daughters, I supported us by being a family child care provider for children ages two to ten, fifty hours a week, fifty weeks a year, for twenty-two years. During that time I homeschooled my daughters and continued my own independent study of human development. In 1989 I developed the seven-session parenting series, “Meeting the Needs of Children” which I teach publicly and in the prison system with inmate parents.”
Pam Leo founded The Book Fairy Pantry Project in 2016 and is dedicated to supporting the literacy of all children, especially those who normally wouldn’t have access to books!
“Illiteracy is a disease of poverty.
The way out of poverty is literacy.
The currency of literacy is children’s books.”
