About our Speakers:

Lisa Corcoran

Nine children, six siblings, and 97 cousins may have had something to do with Lisa's desire to study parenting. Lisa took a parenting class based on Adlerian (Alfred Adler) theories that proved to be the most humbling experience of her life. She learned that to raise loving, responsible, confident and happy children she would need to start with herself. So Lisa started taking more classes. She started applying the tools and little by little her home became a calmer place to be and her job as a mother didn't really feel like a job at all. Lisa founded The Parenting Playbook to bring these life-changing tools to more families.
