I joined the Advisory Board several years after my two daughters enthusiastically participated in a MyGirl Coaching class! As a licensed school psychologist, I believe that these programs are filling an important mental health need in an affordable and accessible way.

I am a recent college graduate and joined the Board in 2023. My specific interests lie in expanding the reach of MyGirl Coaching beyond our local community. One way I've helped to do this is by writing course curriculum for the Girls on Purpose program.

Girl on Purpose

How to Help Your Girl Build Self-Confidence and Do All That She's Meant for in the World

You can build your girl’s self-confidence and set her on a path to believing in her ability to be or do anything she wants to in the world ... and it’s not as hard as you think.

Author Danielle Fuligni McKay draws on her vast experience leading groups that teach girls self confidence and her own personal story as a positive parent to offer parents, mentors, teachers and coaches of adolescent and teenage girls powerful methods for raising confident girls with the ability to manage emotions.

Girl on Purpose covers McKay's entire journey—what caused her low self-confidence as a kid, the a-ha moment that turned it around, and what she does to continue building her daughters’ power muscles to this day.

In this book you’ll learn: The breakthrough that empowered McKay to choose self-confidence · How to create a confidence framework for your girl · The importance of mindset (yours and hers) · Her technique to successfully manage negative self-talk · How she started owning her emotions and taught her girls to do the same · Why your daughter’s circle of friends matters.
