Giddy by Nature mentoring is about the power of surrounding yourself with people who inspire you to be your best self. This mentorship meets your child where they are in creating tools and habits that empower them in school, on the athletic field, and in life.
There are various forms of mentorship and multiple pricing options in order to create an opportunity for anyone who wants the support. Note: there are suggested prices, and each opportunity is pay what you wish. While this is Seattle-based, video calls may be scheduled, too.

Giddy Events combine activities and surrounding yourself with people who light you up. I've noticed that when I am "giddy with friends," things come together and I follow my best sense of self.
These events (meditation, paint parties, hip hop yoga) are on zoom or in parks around Seattle. See Calendar page for details!! More coming soon!!
The story behind this mentorship program:
Growing up, I had learning differences. I started retreating in the classroom and dreading school. I became unsure of myself and in my abilities until I went to a school that addressed the ways that I learned differently. Through addressing and acknowledging my learning style at a young age, I was able to excel in the school setting thereafter and, more importantly, feel more myself and content with outside-the-box learning styles.
My parents, siblings, grandparents/cousins (on both sides) are all in education. I grew up on boarding school campus in Delaware that stretched over 2,000 acres of corn fields. My parents were intentional about creating educational spaces in organic settings - playing soccer with high-school boys as a 3rd grader…eating Cheerios at the kitchen table as a 6th grader with my mom's advisees. My parents infused both education and play throughout my childhood — so I grew a strong work ethic while having fun still getting dirty. I love to work with kids and create these educational spaces in natural settings.
In college, I had to take a year off at the peak of my lacrosse career with an illness that made me bed ridden; after visiting over 10 doctors the summer before my senior year, no one could figure out what was going on; because of this debilitating fatigue and sickness, I returned to Brown a year later, but was still not well enough to play lacrosse in college again. Through this difficult experience I became committed to living an authentic, holistic life even if that looks different than my peers. When lacrosse, my friends, and school became inaccessible, I had to reassess how I identified myself and what made me happy. This adversity ultimately created more opportunities in creating a meaningful and sustainably happy life.
