Aaron Norikane, CPDT
Aaron has been working to support and develop quality youth programs in the Seattle area for over 25 years. Throughout his career, he has been a strong advocate for creating strong connections and supportive systems for children from all backgrounds. Aaron joined the Sound Discipline team as a facilitator in 2016 and helps educators gain tools to empower young people. He feels extremely fortunate working to stretch the perceptions of how young people are seen and grateful to be in a profession that align with his values and how he wants to live his life. Aaron was born and raised in Seattle and finds his greatest source of joy in watching his two children learn, grow and giggle. His colleagues describe him as passionate, caring, and constantly pushing to make our systems better. By the end of his career, Aaron hopes that he will have helped shift the trajectory of this community towards a mutually respectful place where everyone belongs and matters.
Corrina Skildum, MA, LMHC
Corrina is passionate about co-creating experiences that empower people as they learn and grow. For the past 25 years, she has worked as an experiential educator and therapist in a variety of community settings, from wilderness programs to community mental health and education. At Sound Discipline, Corrina facilitates learning experiences and leadership meetings for educators as they implement strength-based, solution-focused, and trauma-informed practices in the classrooms and schools they serve. She is regularly inspired by the work teachers and school staff do when faced with incredible challenges, and their perseverance and dedication to building more compassionate and healthy communities for all students. When Corrina is not working, she is happiest when she is paddle boarding and soaking in the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
