Mindy Carlson is a quilter, knitter, baker, reader, writer, life coach, and Administrative Head of School of Rock Creek Montessori in Kensington, MD. She also happens to be the mother of two spirited boys and the wife of an amazing economist.
After growing up on a farm in Iowa, she bypassed veterinary school to begin a winding journey that took her to UC Berkeley, Washington, DC, and Basel, Switzerland. Switzerland changed how she viewed parenting, travel, food, and the United States – all for the better! She combined the Swiss parenting philosophy with her Montessori experiences, developing a new philosophy of how we better relate to children. Inspired by the change in her own relationship with her children, she decided to inspire others through a series of parenting articles. You can find these articles at such outlets as AFineParent.com, Big Life Journal, and The Washington Post.
Currently, she is beginning a new journey into fiction and mystery writing, with several books trying to find a home with agents. You can follow her quest to publish on her blog, http://www.MindyQs.com.
