Souzzann Zink, The Mothering Mindset Mentor, has helped parents in online-based mothering programs, private sessions, live events, and through over two decades of classroom and administrative experience in public and private Montessori schools in Utah and California. She started the school her sons attended and helped get two others established, in part while earning a MAED with a focus on educator burnout and Montessori education.
She has taught transformational workshops in three countries, including across the United States, and published over a dozen books and manuals in several fields. Her TV show, Montessori for Everybody.TV, had a following of over 20,000 viewers and schools around the world use her innovative training materials for in-service staff enrichment. Her view is that motherhood is the journey that can unlock not only the gifts mothers are meant to give their children, but the deepest genius they have to offer the world. Her vision is to see children finally recognized as the whole, perfect beings they really are – while taking the fun of mothering to a whole new level. She is the creator of the Mothering Archetypes™ and the Mothering Genius program.
Souzzann offered and continues to offer me the ability to view a master at work and life. Specifically, in working with children and as a dad, Souzzann has developed in me the opportunity to afford the child a space to feel safe, know that one may fail in the moment but ultimately will recover, be present in the company of the child and parent. In the absence of Souzzann in my life, as guide, I’m quite sure I would be the lesser educator, dad and person. I am, and will be forever, grateful to Souzzann.
Souzzann is so gifted in what she does, . . . a gentle, yet powerful, guiding light for us parents who want to do our very best for our families.
Let me tell you a story about the day everything changed
Are you a visionary mom with big dreams for your family, and the world, who feels overwhelmed when the atmosphere in your home doesn’t match those dreams?
Do you believe mothering is an art that needs to be learned – especially if you want to do it really, really well?
Are you pretty sure you’re raising one of the children who will change the world, so this is possibly the most important thing you’re ever going to do?
I also want you to understand that the solution is a lot closer and easier than you may think. I help moms just like you, discover that mothering is an art that needs to be learned – and that it can be more fun than work. This is one of the key shifts that is foundational to being the best mom you can possibly be.
Since you’re still here, you’re ready to make this your top priority. You’re ready to spend less time on your kids and spend more time with them, enjoying them. Once you master it, the missing piece actually takes less effort and time than you currently spend – while creating the relationship you dream of with your children. – So let’s talk.
I’ve been there (including several years as a single mom/student/entrepreneur) while bringing up my 2 sons. More importantly, I’ve guided hundreds of moms to find solutions to big issues with their kids and to embrace a simpler, deeper, more respectful parenting relationship – while having more free time and fun.
For me, transformation has been an avocation and a way of life – as well as being central to my work. I was invited to be on the international faculty of the Educational Kinesiology Foundation (Brain Gym®) and I have trainer certification in Neuro-Linguistic Programming issued by its co-founder.
Over the last 3+ decades I’ve gone from creating a small, thriving Montessori school community of about 70 families – while raising sons who now practice law, karate, fatherhood, and book buying – to mentoring moms all over the world. I’ve helped start 3 Montessori schools (think: supported hundreds of parents to shift into a whole new way of interacting with their kids, usually having only a few minutes to spend with each), taught transformational seminars in person in 3 countries and all over the U.S. and helped train innovative educators in 4 countries using only virtual learning tools I created. Now for me, it’s all about the moms. (I know where the power is.)
I’ve learned motherhood is the journey that can unlock not only the gifts you are meant to give your children, but the deepest gifts you have to offer the world. I would love to help you access your own deeper wisdom while experiencing more of the happiness and fun that being a mother can mean.

In case you wanted to know about something other than my professional life, here are a few odd facts:
- I was a terrible speller, and didn’t master all the math facts, until I was almost 30 years old.
- Daughter of two decorated war veterans (a fighter pilot and a flight nurse), I’ve lived in 9 states and Germany.
- I have over 3000 books. (No, I haven’t read them all – but I’ve read a lot).
- I have an almost-teenage grandson.
- In roughly chronological order, I’ve collected dolls, make-up, Montessori materials, charms, and stones/crystals (now, only the last one).
- Yoga, dance, Feldenkrais, and walking in my San Diego area neighborhood makes my heart sing.
