My name is Min Yi Su, it means revive conscious relationships in Chinese. I can honestly say that name, not only suits me, but, is a daily reminder of what I strive for everyday. I have a life purpose to help improve the lives and relationships of children and their families. My first job was to raise my brother since I was 9 years old. Since then, I’ve become a proud mother of three amazing human beings. In addition to consultations and classes, I’ve worked in the non profit sector since 2003. Some organizations I’ve collaborated with are: Developing Options to Violence, Oregon Social Learning Center, Womenspace, Daisy C.H.A.I.N. (Creating Healthy Alliances in New-Mothering), Wellmama, Southern Oregon University, Lane Community College, City of Eugene, and the San Francisco Waldorf School.
