After 35 years working as a nurse, midwife and early childhood teacher Mary saw a great need for a one-on-one service to provide education and mentoring for parents. 

In response, she founded Plum Parenting, and since 2007 has  developed unique skills and methods which are proving to be enormously helpful to parents, whanau, caregivers and teachers.
