Hi, I'm Marie Roker-Jones and I help moms of boys navigate the challenges of raising boys.
With more than 15 years experience of providing health and education training and development services, Marie Roker-Jones – a Certified Breakthrough Parenting® Instructor and Intrinsic Coach® in Health and Wellness – helps moms navigate the challenges of raising sons as they journey from boyhood to manhood.
