Trainer(s) Information: 
Mary is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, however her formal training is secondary to the life training she received from her mother, Dr. Jane Nelsen, also a Marriage and Family Therapist and author of the Positive Discipline books and Serenity: Simple Steps for Recovering Peace of Mind, Real Happiness, and Great Relationships. From the earliest time she can remember her mother and father had her involved in respectful communication, encouragement, and focusing on solutions. 
Mary loves being a wife to husband Mark and a mother to her son’s Greyson, Reid and Parker. Since Mary’s first love is being the mother of three young boys, it was a natural for her to become a Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator and to share with others all she has learned (and is still learning) in parenting classes and workshops. She is also available for individual parent coaching. 
Mary is a therapist whose own life is an example of the joy in living that can be found by living the principles and skills she teaches. 

Fernanda Lee, M.A.Ed, holds a degree in business administration and worked for Accenture, Bank of America and other investment brokers, until she became a mother. She also holds a Master Degree in Education, with Pupil Personnel Services credential, and has served as a school counselor in elementary and middle public schools. She is a lead trainer in Positive Discipline, serving parents, health professionals, teachers, early childhood educators, couples, and professionals in the workplace in the United States, Brazil, Portugal and Luxembourg. 
Fernanda was featured in two national magazines “Escola” and “English as a Foreign Language” discussing the practical application of Positive Discipline in the classroom. She is very thankful to be raising her two teenagers with Positive Discipline, as without it she would have pulled out all her hair.
