Tia began her training in Sociology and Community Development in 1987 at the University of Oklahoma. Since that time she has worked in outreach with various organizations and received training to work with at-risk and special needs youth, parents, teachers, and community leaders.
Tia has had the privilege to inspire and inform tens of thousands of people with life affirming messages in Schools, Post-Secondary Institutions, Youth Groups, and Shelters across British Columbia, Canada, and internationally. Her passion is in helping youth find hope, value, and restoration in a culture of addiction and brokenness. She believes that when we educate young people we can strengthen them to greatly impact their own generation.
