Before developing MeMoves, Roberta Scherf created programs for numerous non-profit organizations. She has always been a student, was once a clown, learned house-building in Bath ME, and became a mom to two wonderful kids. When her second child struggled with the world around her, Roberta's life changed and she began to learn everything she could about embodied cognition, movement, music, and their effect on learning. She spent more than a decade developing MeMoves and similar tools that help people of all ages and abilities self-regulate, learn more easily and smile. In her spare time, she is the happy caretaker of Piper, an English Setter.
