Before Cindy was ever a birth-worker she earned a Bachelors of Science in Dramatic Arts and a Masters of Education in Elementary Education with a major concentration in Early Childhood Education. Cindy has taught in both public and private schools as a NYC Licensed Teacher. She is a natural parenting and outdoor education enthusiast, and considers her engaging Tinkergarten® classes as a natural progression of the "& Beyond" offerings of Tree of Life: Natural Childbirth & Beyond.
“This was the first time I haven't felt like a bad parent for having a child that wanted to play in the water instead of sitting in a circle. This is a great experience for both of us.”
