If you are interested in co-hosting a playgroup at your home or a park in your area, or you just want more information, please contact Tina.

Tina McRorie earned a Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology and has undertaken an intensive study of child development (not coincidentally) since the birth of her first child in 2000. She has been doing parenting coaching in one form or another since 1999. She founded Monterey Bay Parenting in 2010 and has spent countless hours reading parenting books, writing book reviews, publishing newsletters, and synthesizing research, perspectives and experience into articles and meeting topics.

Tina directly supports parents through Monterey Bay Parenting events as well as individually. Tina’s personal mission is to improve the wellbeing and humanity of the next generation through parenting education and support.
