Renee Mattson M.Ed. – FounderSpecializing inCoach for Parents and EducatorsLocationCincinnati, OH firstname.lastname@example.org
Renee Mattson is the founder of Child in Bloom parent and educational coaching. Renee and her husband Toby are in the middle of raising their three children who are 15, 13, and 8. She continually finds herself drawn to children, parents and teachers in need of support during difficult times. Renee is a master teacher and coach with 20 years experience in the field of education where she has held the following roles:
Licensed intervention specialist for learning and behavior needs within public and private schools around Ohio and Kentucky,
Adjunct Faculty member at Xavier University where she instructs, coaches, and supervises students who are participating in field practicums.
Master Coach trained through the Family Infant Preschool Program (a research based program used for early intervention in 58 counties in Ohio).
Renee’s approach to coaching is based on the principle of parents are their child’s first teacher. Parents therefore need to assume nothing and teach, model, and practice everything. She offers parents a balanced approach that is clear, matter of fact, and encourages self-regulation of the parent and child. Parents who hear her presentations walk away saying, “I could listen to Renee all night.” or “Wow! I finally have some tools in my back pocket!” Renee presents to large and small groups and focuses much of her practice on individual observations and conversations in person or on the phone.
Anne Jaroszewicz is so pleased to be joining Child in Bloom as a formally trained parent coach. She has been working and training with Renee Mattson for the last two years as the first graduate of Child in Bloom University. Anne has been practicing parenting skills for 25 years and, with her husband Ted, has raised three young men, ages 26, 24 and 20. Anne has also taught Sunday school to 1st through 6th graders at Christ Church Cathedral in Cincinnati and is a coach for Indian Hill High School’s girls’ lacrosse team. Anne has counseled a number of families dealing with autism spectrum issues and others just looking for help in dealing with moody teenagers! Anne is optimistic, upbeat, and creative in her problem solving approaches. She believes every child is unique, and tapping into that uniqueness is a crucial step to changing behavior. Anne will be focusing on connecting our services to churches, schools and families in the Cincinnati Area.

Gretchen hails from generations of compassionate and creative moms and teachers. As a mom of three littles herself, Gretchen gets to practice daily the strategies and skills that Child in Bloom teaches parents. In fact, Gretchen has worked with children for years, from teaching elementary school students, coaching young athletes, and running summer camps. After learning from excellent teachers at Mariemont High School in Cincinnati and Bucknell University in Pennsylvania, Gretchen achieved her early childhood and elementary teaching degree and license. She then taught third grade in Philadelphia with Teach for America. Next, she then trained college students in leadership skills for 7 years as a campus minister.
She and her husband Danny laugh with amazement at their children, and they seek out many resources to help them parent well. Gretchen loves parenting because it combines her passion for developing children, her classroom discipline strategies, and her creativity. Her cleverness expresses itself through enjoyable moments rewarding kids with ‘poop stamps’, establishing ‘take a break’ spaces, and empowering through choices. Some of her favorite phrases say to kids include “I wonder if you’re going to flexible?” “you get what you get and you don’t throw a fit,” and “I see that you’re mad, mad, mad… How are you going to calm down?” She thinks the best thing parents can teach children is how to calm themselves down.
She loves children’s bookstores, “craft-ernoons”, cardiosculpt class, and hiking. Gretchen believes a key to parenting is to give kids independence early and often. She looks forward to working with you and seeing you and your children bloom!
