From 1996-1997 Ms. Goehring worked as a peers
educating peers coordinator for TERRA Association, a program she co-created and
implemented in schools, hospitals and universities to provide community
education in the area of teen pregnancy. From 1995-1996 she was a youth
mediator with Community and Family Services. At that time she co-created and
implemented a youth friendly mediation manual and program, and worked with

and or criminal charges.

An active parent, she has managed sports teams, has
