Joy Marchese sees herself as an agent of change. With her combined passion and experience in parenting, education, professional development, and wellness she is able to give you a comprehensive look into the modern world of parenting, relationships, and personal and professional development.
Joy has worked as a teacher, trainer, and parent educator in various schools and corporate settings for over 20 years. Her experience teaching in both public and private schools, training managers in large companies and running an educational non-profit organization has helped her understand the unique needs of culturally, ethnically and socially diverse groups.
Most recently Joy delivers training and workshops internationally through Positive Discipline UK. Concurrently she also works as a secondary teacher at The American School in London, England, where she successfully implements Positive Discipline in the classroom and delivers teacher training and parent education courses within her school and community.
Joy's Master Degree in Education from Hofstra University is secondary to the education and experience she has achieved from her successes and challenges as a teacher to thousands of students. Joy has a lifelong commitment and passion for child development and education. It is her mission to share her knowledge and experience with both teachers and parents around the globe.
Karine Quarez graduated from BBA EDHEC Business School and started her career within the retail industry as a senior buyer and then became a category director.
Over the last 16 years, Karine has travelled all around Europe including Central and Eastern Europe where she experienced various educational systems within different countries and cultures, and from which she gained a wide range of experience by confronting diverse pedagogical methodologies, which has enabled her to identify what works best from each system.
When Karine discovered Positive Discipline back in 2011 during a conference, she immediately realized that this approach was assembling and summarizing the ideas she had been gradually building during this period of traveling, living, working and experiencing different countries and cultures.
Karine believes that Positive Discipline provides us with a methodology, which is both simple and efficient at the same time.
It can be applied effectively not only by parents and teachers but also more broadly with other relationships such as partners and colleagues. Since she has personally experienced and introduced Positive Discipline at home not only has her family life been transformed but she has also seen the benefits in her other roles working with young people.
Having seen these benefits at first hand she would like to make the tools available to as many parents, teachers, and caregivers as possible.
Most recently, Karine has been delivering training courses and workshops within the UK for both parents and teachers in French and in English.
As well as Positive Discipline trainer she also has many years experience in coaching people to help them rebalance their emotional systems.
Karine is married to Francois and has 3 children (18,16 and 12) that are bilingual in French and English.
