Lydia joined Parenting Journey in 2016, bringing 30 years of non-profit human services experience with her. With an MSW from Rutgers University, she has worked in child welfare, family services, homeless services, and domestic and sexual violence in New Jersey, New York, Arizona and now Massachusetts. After two decades of program development and management, Lydia blended that knowledge with her love of writing to work on the fundraising side of non-profit management. Though she started off as the Development Manager here, her passion for the work of Parenting Journey led her back to the program operations and she has stepped into the role of Training Manager.

When not promoting the work of Parenting Journey, Lydia might be found concocting up a new vegetarian meal, planning another venture south of the equator, or participating in something as silly as the Insane Inflatable Race.
