I love everything about EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE (EQ). It is truly a passion.
I became interested back in my graduate studies where I completed a research paper on an emotional wellness program for schools. As I moved through life and career - I found that everything lead back to the need for emotional awareness and emotional self-care. And that when individuals raised their EQ - they THRIVED. And now I am back onto my vision to plant this EQ seed at an early age...and support in any way I can to make it grow.
EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE (EQ) it UP!
For Our Students
TEACHERS: Are you looking for a simple emotional wellness curriculum you can implement into the classroom? PARENTS: Would you like to have your child develop their EQ as well as their IQ? This is what EQ it UP! offers: an answer for both. Through it's in-school based teacher manual - and it's after school workshops - students can begin to increase their EQ and self, social, and emotional awareness.
"In one huge longitudinal British study published in 2011, babies were followed through childhood and into adulthood for fifty years. Their success and happiness in life was strongly correlated to their emotional intelligence. Other studies link emotional health to better mental and physical health, more academic and employment success and happier marriages. Resource & Read More

An After School Workshop
Developing a Practice
Help your child EQ it UP! in a more profound way by developing a daily practice of self, social, and emotional awareness and self-care in this 8-week-long after school workshop. It is fun, educational, team-building, and increases self-confidence!
Our trained Facilitators will come to your school and all you have to do is sign up. Parents/Guardians who qualify can also be trained as a facilitator.
At this point, we are testing two separate workshops: girls only, and boys only, grades 1st through 5th. First phase of the program will implement into the Greater San Diego through Los Angeles areas in the 2018-19 school years. And we hope to expand into other parts of the Unites States by Spring of 2019.
