“‘Parent:’ it’s a verb, use it frequently.”

Dr. JJ is a trusted Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and was voted one of the Best Doctors in America 2004 through 2012, after spending the last 30 years caring for children in Los Angeles. With degrees from UC Berkeley, Duke and USC, as well as the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, Dr. JJ is the lady with the answers on what the heck to do for, about and with kids from zero to 21. Now retired from her private practice (that lots of Campowerment moms knew well), Dr. JJ is a TV personality on Hallmark’s Home and Family Show, drops wisdom on parenting websites, sits on the Board of Directors and Board of Governors of United Cerebral Palsy Los Angeles, and leads a national Food Allergy Education Council that reports to the National Peanut Board.

Oh, and she’s a mom (hey, Max). Oh oh! And she’s a wickedly wonderful, professionally trained chef/baker. At Campowerment, Dr. JJ leads Parenting Workshops + Circles…and when the occasion arises, graces us with her cooking/baking goodness, mixing metaphors that can help us rise to all occasions!
