Barbara Desmarais


Barbara Desmarais, Dip. ECE, is a parenting and life coach. Barbara began her career as an Early Childhood Educator which led to Parent Education when she was invited to lead a parenting course to Deaf parents, in 1988. 
In 2002 she began training as a Life Coach and on the advice of her own coach, she chose to specialize in parent coaching as it beautifully blended her experience, passion and educational background.   
She coaches parents privately, over the telephone and continues to deliver parenting workshops and courses throughout Vancouver.  She feels what qualifies her best to do the work she does is her 29 years of being a parent.  Barbara has two young adult children and helped to raise her husband’s twin, deaf sons. 
Barbara is frequently quoted in Today’s Parent magazine and is often called upon to offer her opinion on radio and podcasts.     Read her Website here.
