Advocate.  A person who publicly supports a cause of policy.  No matter the path we took to get here, we all ended My 1 Year Anniversary gift to you is a podcast series with Tina Beauvais, a life coach that has been “refined through the fire,” a parent like you who took the lessons she learned as the mom to a beautiful young lady with muscular dystrophy to help athletes and parents navigate life’s struggles.  When you think “Coach,” you probably think about Craig T. Nelson…. or the coach of your favorite team or maybe even of a coach that made an impact on you.  Did you know that the word “coach” is derived from the kind of “coach” that took people from one place to another, like a buggy?  If you think about it, that’s what a coach really does – she takes people from where they are to where they want to go. In this episode, the first of a 3-episode series, Tina tells us the story of her daughter, Noelle’s, birth and the story of how she became a Coach, and in doing so, she delivers so much wisdom that we can all apply to our everyday lives!  

Meet My Guest: 

Tina Beauvais

Hey there! I’m Tina Beauvais I am a Disability Inclusion Educator on a mission to teach students and parents how they can be more inclusive. I also Coach Mamas of kids with Disabilities, teaching them how to reclaim their unique story of Motherhood.

This mission is close to my heart because my daughter Noel is diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy; I don’t know Motherhood without tubes and trials.

We have a big beautiful blended family of 5 kids total. My husband Dustin and I have been married for 11 years; we’re a fun loving family always up for adventure!

I like to say:
“Integration is having a seat at the table, inclusion is having a voice and friends at the table; let’s just say that if a food fight breaks out every child should be able to participate, even the ones who need help throwing the mashed potatoes!”

Tina also sells beautifully created merchandise at Be Kind Live Kind and promotes inclusive practices on Instagram at @tinab_disabilityinclusioned.

Part 03: The 6W's of the Ashley Barlow Co - The Who

Calling all parents, teachers, school staff, self advocates, disability organization staff, doctors, therapists, coaches, tutors, grandparents, babysitters, community organization staff, volunteers, … Calling anyone that supports a student with a disability!!!


Parents of a child in special education are exhausted. Teachers and school staff are about the busiest professionals in the workforce. Nobody has time for in-person trainings, and thanks to COVID-19, few can safely access in-person trainings right now!
