I have taught as a professor of psychology in Ocean County College’s School of Social Sciences for ten years, where I lecture on various psychology subjects including child psychology. Along with my daughter, Kelly, I am a published author of the children's book "What Kind of Dog Am I?" based on Posha, Kelly's rescued dog. The book’s mission is to teach children to value themselves like Posha values herself.
Over the past 10 years, I have lectured and conducted over 45 individual psychology classes with over 30 students per class. As a Professional Member of the National Speakers Association, I have facilitated hundreds of workshops on various motivational topics . We currently tour elementary schools, sharing our philosophy and the popularity of Posha with kindergarteners through fourth-grade students. We have presented “Feeling Good About Me” workshops to over 20,000 students.
