Helping YOU Raise Smart Kids in a Digital World!


Want personalized help with your family's tech use?

Do you feel like you're:

  • Arguing over the amount of screen time in your home?
  • Yelling at your teenager to stop gaming or get off that phone?
  • Overwhelmed trying to keep up with new games or apps your kid wants?
  • Afraid your child won't remember the rules to stay safe online?

You're not alone! I had the exact same struggles and felt the same way while raising my three kids.

Here at Smart Digital kids I share the best resources and strategies to help parents control tech in their home and connect with their kids.

I'll help you raise smart, confident, compassionate kids in a digital age.


"I appreciated the information about co-gaming. The Ah-ha moments to hear some else say it - I was like, Thank you!" - Jennifer M.

"Our 14 year-old son wanted to get an Instagram account, and Dr. Pell recommended the book A Teen’s Guide to Social Media and Mobile Devices by Jonathan McKee.
Our son read it on his own. A very thoughtful book indeed.
Here's what our son had to say about the book:
I read this book a couple months before I got social media and I feel that this was a great way to ease into it, along with learning about how to make sure it doesn’t get out of hand. We are truly thankful for Dr. Pell's insightful recommendation."  -Sharon H.

What makes me qualified to coach parents?

I’ve heard from hundreds of parents who want to raise their kids today without relying too much on technology. Many say their biggest struggle is trying to monitor what their kids watch online while regulating time spent on digital devices (I wrote about it here.) Helping parents navigate our digital world is the culmination of my personal experience and education.

I'm a Parent and Grandparent

I raised three digital kids (now 22, 25, and 27) who are out of the house and thriving on their own. I spent a lot of time with my kids while homeschooling them for over a decade. Using tech intentionally and responsibly was a priority. Now as a grandmother my passion is helping parents and teachers raise smart, healthy, happy children in our digital age.

I'm an Expert in Technology Use

I earned a PhD in educational leadership with an educational technology focus which has allowed me to share my experience and expertise with teachers and parents all over the world.

I'm a Teacher and Tutor

I’m a licensed teacher, having taught grade school, middle school, high school, and college, who easily connects with kids of all ages. I build quick rapport with kids because I remember what it feels like to be a kid. I enjoy tutoring teens teaching them how to use tech in smart and responsible ways.

I'm a Connector

I've met hundreds of authors and business owners whose focus is digital health and wellness. I share with parents and teachers the expertise and wisdom from hundreds of parenting experts, education leaders, research scientists, and digital parent educators.
