About the Panelists

This week we’re touching base with the parents including Melody Gutierrez (Mother of 3), Allison Gonsoulin (Mother of 1), friend of the foundation Naya Johnson (Mother of 1), Tuli Roy-Kirwan (Mother of 2), friend of the foundation, Ed Garnes (Father of 1), and John Kornegay (Father of 1)! Parental Engagement is incredibly important to us so we asked some parents of children below the age of 12 to go deep with us and reflect on their parental journey. From your sense of self to advice for other parents, this conversation was both refreshing and eye-opening!
