What if you could spend a long weekend relaxing… yet emerge recharged, inspired, and empowered to create a more patient, calm, peaceful, cooperative, purposeful, and joyful parenthood for yourself?


Sounds too good to be true, but it’s totally possible! That’s exactly what you’ll achieve at the Purposeful Parent Bootcamp — respite and recalibration.

the experience

The Purposeful Parent Bootcamp is a moms-only, intensive parenting retreat. It’s limited to 5-7 moms, ensuring that you each receive ample attention from me.

We’ll gather for 4-days/3-nights at a comfortable, relaxing vacation home. Our time together will include self-care activities, community with other moms in your tribe, and more than 10 hours of intensive personal and parent coaching.

I felt so nourished after the Bootcamp. I learned from Penny and the other moms and received encouragement for the day-to-day challenges of raising our special kids. There was a perceptible feeling of understanding, awareness, and a sense of togetherness from everyone! I left with a renewed sense of what kind of parent I want be, and need to be.
