Aimee Snow is a free spirit and mother of 7, two of whom were adopted internationally and came from traumatic backgrounds. Frustrated with the lack of mental health support and efficient therapeutic programs available to her and similar families struggling with CDT, she became a Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI®) Practitioner and created My Healing Home in 2016. Her personal insight and understanding of children from hard places have made her a well-known child and family advocate in her community. She spent many years utilizing her knowledge of trauma in her own successful preschool program and saw remarkable improvements in the students. She has earned her Certificate of Marriage and Family Relations from BYU-Idaho and will soon graduate with her BMFS. She loves the arts and founded the Riverton City Classical Arts Guild which provides opportunities for the community to perform, learn, and enjoy the benefits of classical music. In her spare time, she enjoys singing, paddleboarding, learning about people, and spending time with her family.

Tiffany Sleater is an adventurous soul. Tiffany and her husband Ryan have five biological daughters. In 2017, they began their foster care journey and became foster parents to a sibling group of 3 children. In 2018, they adopted the sibling group. While helping her new children with their trauma, she was introduced to TBRI. TBRI transformed Tiffany’s parenting and has helped her better understand her children’s struggles. Also, it has helped her children better connect with Mom and Dad, and others in their lives. In 2019, Tiffany was able to attend the TBRI practitioner training in Dallas, Texas. Recently, she went back to college to get her bachelor's in Psychology and is projected to graduate in the spring of 2022. Tiffany is passionate about children from hard places and is still a licensed foster parent. She mentors many children and teens who have progressed through foster care.
