She is also a sought sought-after speaker for educational conferences, international events, and parenting programs across the nation.

Healy’s intuitive insights and scientific understanding of children is grounded in her educational background, having studied psychology at Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts, where she received a BA, and also an MBA focused on human potential. She then studied at Fielding Graduate University, which is based in Santa Barbara, California, where she focused on child clinical psychology and completed two years of doctoral training.
