About Sloan

Sloan Walsh

University of California, Santa Barbara



Sloan Walsh has been teaching Parent Education Classes since 2001. After teaching in the classroom for over 15 years this transition to working with parents and families was a natural one for her. She is passionate about teaching moms and dads creative approaches to parenting through an understanding of the brain, mind, and body with an emphasis on living and loving from our whole hearts. She teaches parenting methods from an Interpersonal Neurobiology perspective, with an emphasis on fostering attachment, practicing mindfulness and raising emotionally literate children. Aware that we as parents cannot give to our children what we don't have, her classes emphasize self-nurture and the daily practices of loving ourselves through the journey of parenthood. 

Sloan obtained her degree from UCSB and her credential from Cal State Northridge. She spent a number of years as an Early Literacy Instructor training teachers, working with credential programs in local universities, guest lecturing at various venues, and collaborating with parents and teachers to promote literacy in the community. She is passionate about her three kids and partnering with her husband in all their endeavors. In her free time Sloan loves to exercise, indulge in creativity, and spend time with friends. Prayer, mindfulness, and gratitude are her lifelines.
