Dr. Maria Glukhovsky immigrated to the U.S. from the Ukraine when she was seven years old. After receiving her Doctor of Pharmacy in 2008, she served her community as a pharmacist and a clinical educator at a Doctor of Pharmacy Program. She became passionate about promoting mental health and self-esteem while writing about the topic for health care professionals. The research and statistics made her realize children needed more support and encouragement. That knowledge led her to write this book. Her faith in God is the center of her life.
