Jill Carbone is an ESL teacher, mindfulness coach, and freelance writer who is passionate about improving the lives of her students and readers. If 50 teens weren’t enough to keep her alert and firmly attached to the present moment, her two college kids challenge her intellectually with their circular reasoning skills. As a mindfulness coach, Jill believes the world would change for the better if we taught our children how to live, eat, love, and feel mindfully. She actively plays soccer and hockey and enjoys spending time in nature. Catch up with Jill on LinkedIn.
