|Welcome to our website - yes, yours and mine. Because chances
are, if you've landed here, you and I share something important
in common. Both of us have been deeply affected by school bullying
and peer abuse. Maybe you're a teen who's lonely and sad because
no matter how hard you try to fit in at school, your classmates
laugh at you behind your back and constantly pick on you.
Maybe you're the bully, or even the bystander, the person who sees another student being hurt and humiliated but who does nothing to help. Perhaps you're a parent who can't stand one more day of watching your child suffer at the hands of his peers simply for being different. You might even be the mom or dad of a bully, and at your wit's end over what to do about it. Or, maybe you're an educator or counselor, frustrated by the pain you witness, yet feeling powerless to stop it.
No matter who you identify with above, I can promise you from my heart that you've come to the right place. Take a moment, close your eyes and breathe. There are solutions. Someone does understand. That someone is me. Hopefully, you'll find both information and comfort here.
I want you to know that I’m not just a face in cyberspace. Since the release of my book, The New York Times Best-seller, Please Stop Laughing At Me….One Woman’s Inspirational Story, I’ve been touring the nation’s schools sharing my story with students, teachers and parents to motivate change. My day-long in school program is called INJJA (It’s NOT Just Joking Around!) and if you’re interested in bringing me to your school, please go to the seminar tab of this website, email firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to include your contact info so I can follow up right away.
I also work with organizations such as police, judicial, government, counseling, PTA’s, school boards, and youth groups and also keynote events and speak at conferences and conventions.
Let's get through this together,
