"In 2006, I was named a “Champion of Children” by First 5 LA, the largest and most influential children’s advocacy group in Los Angeles. I was a member of the clinical team of the Pediatric Pain Clinic at UCLA’s Mattel’s Children’s Hospital for many years, Co-Investigator on a multi-year, multi-site research study at UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Center/Semel Institute on the impact of mindfulness in education, and a Collaborator on an investigation of mindful eating for children and their caregivers at UC-SF. I have spoken at the Mind & Life Institute, University of California Los Angeles, University of Massachusetts, University of Kansas, Columbia University, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, the San Diego Children’s Hospital, the Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre California, National University of Singapore, Mahidol University, Bangkok, Thailand and many other prestigious institutes in the United States and abroad. I have been quoted in The Boston Globe, Time Magazine for Kids, Better Homes and Gardens, and Publico in Gutalajara, Mexico. My work has been covered by The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, USA Today, National Public Radio, various yoga journals, and CBS Morning News.
"My husband and I co-founded the Inner Kids Foundation, which brought mindful awareness to under-served schools and neighborhoods in Los Angeles from 2000 until 2009. The work of the Inner Kids Foundation was profiled in the syndicated half-hour news program Profiles in Caring.
"For better or worse, I've embraced new technology and not only blog for the Huffington Post and Intent, but also tweet, am on Facebook and in 2007, together with my daughter as part of her high-school community service project, created the Mindfulness Together online community dedicated to the inner lives of children and those who love them."
