In this constantly evolving age of advanced technology, parents, child care providers and educators are finding it
increasingly more difficult to monitor children's activities and keep them safe both online and otherwise. As a criminal
Investigator, former Juvenile Probation Officer, published Author and owner of UCL Investigation Services, I educate
parents, child care providers and others on how to use today's technology to their advantage in effectively monitoring and
pro actively parenting the Cyber Savvy Child.

I received my Bachelors Degree in Social Welfare from the University of California at Berkeley, my Doctorate from
Hastings College of Law in San Francisco, and have worked in the Criminal Justice field for over 20 years. Additionally, I
was a guest on both the Oprah Winfrey Show and NBC's Today Show, and have been interviewed as an expert on various
topics pertaining to the juvenile justice system, bullying and cyber safety for numerous television, radio, newspaper, and
Internet pieces. I have been a presenter for a variety of forums and have addressed a range of audiences from second
graders through adults. My keen understanding of the law as it pertains to juveniles, coupled with my extensive experience
in investigative techniques while parenting two tech savvy teenagers, has amply prepared me to offer insight and
guidance to parents and others struggling to navigate through this new age of cyber intrusion.

My target topics:

  • Cell phone options and parental controls;

  • Social networking safety;

  • Investigating kids associates and associations;

  • Snooping: The ethical debate;

  • Computer and cellphone spyware;

  • Understanding online codes and teen "lingo";

  • Bullying signs and solutions;

  • Establishing parental networks;

  • Secrets for effectively communicating with your child;

  • Parental empowerment, taking charge;

  • And several other topics related to empowering and educating parents in today’s cyber savvy society.

I deliver a no-nonsense, “keep it real” type of presentation which is engaging with high energy and humor. I routinely
include personal stories, observations and anecdotes, which keep my audience alert and captivated.

As the married mother of three, I live in California where I am working on a series of children’s books, as well as several
other quality of life enrichment projects.
