I am a mom, an artist, an educator and a developer of educational products for children. I recently authored The Complete Hawaiian Reef Fish Coloring Book, which is now being used as a textbook in schools across the country. I am now developing a new line of products that will help parents empower their babies with the gift of communication before they have developed speech. My mission is to bring families closer together by building stronger bonds and trust by using sign language. My products will also use the benefits of sign language to enhance other early language development and cognitive skills. I believe in a multisensory approach to learning because it builds more connections in the brain, which makes learning more efficient and enhances memory. Sign language is the tool that enables us to make learning truly multisensory.
