The Parent Coach Collective

Feeling overwhelmed or discouraged?

You are not alone - and you're in the right place.

Trained by prominent parent coaches Cecilia and Jason Hilkey of Happily Family, this Collective offers the strategies you need to meet the tough moments of parenting. With our nurturing approaches and varied expertise, you will feel more confident in your decision-making, strengthen your connection with your child and enjoy time with your family.

You deserve to feel confident, empowered and joyful.

Raising confident bilingual, cross cultural, or biracial kids feels hard, especially when the world is constantly telling them they aren't enough or that they don't fit in. I believe that no child should have to feel ashamed of their heritage and no parent should feel they have to give up pieces of their cultural identity to help their kids fit in.

I became a parent coach to equip families to build healthy cross cultural relationships and raise confident multicultural kids. Your family deserves to feel connected and understood.

Families Embracing Diversity

As the mom of two bilingual Mexican American boys, Vanessa understands how hard it is to raise confident multicultural kids. As a former teacher, early childhood educator and parent advocate, I've watched many families struggle to navigate cross cultural parenting. They are often overwhelmed by the overly abundant bad advice and feel they have to navigate the journey alone.
