    Before entering the field of education in January of 2005, as an adjunct instructor at Southwest Florida College, Danica’s background started 20 years ago in television production and web technologies. She started her career as a producer/scriptwriter of the nationally award-winning adventure travel show, Outdoor News Network which aired on TNN and various worldwide syndicates. That led to other shows which include World of Horses, Outdoors Across America and Petsville USA. In 1996, led by a heart for teaching, Danica co-created a children’s show for PBS called Whiskers’ Outdoor World.

    As a multifaceted creative, Danica holds degrees in Web Design, a BFA in Digital Design and an M.Ed in Instructional Technology. And, is a Florida state certified instructor in Computer Science and Art K-12. She is a member of the Advertising Federation and has won Addys for her print and video work with Florida Baptist Children’s Homes, and web commercials for clients such as BIC USA, Colliers Intl and University of Phoenix.

    Danica has spent that last few years teaching computer technology, video production and fine art at the elementary school level. She is currently working with non-profit organizations and school systems as a technology advisor and instructor to improve current programs to better serve the local community.
    Among her charitable causes is a feature-length grass roots documentary project which will serve to generate a conversation in the community affected by hostile aggressive parenting tactics. Family harmony is her passion. It is Danica’s goal to use this piece to unite common advocacy groups sprinkled throughout central Florida to develop one powerful voice under the umbrella of a Florida chapter of the Parental Alienation Awareness Organization.

  • Mark Roseman, PhD
    Founder, the Toby Center

    Dr. Roseman is founder and President/CEO of the Toby Center for Family Transitions, a comprehensive family service agency based in Florida and centered around the needs of families when parents choose to separate. The Toby Center genesis began during Roseman’s doctoral research and work with single, separated, divorced and never married parents. He found child outcomes are maximized when multiple social, therapeutic and court services can be provided through a single agency. The Center is becoming a national model for serving the divorcing population and offers its services at locations in Florida, Louisiana, and Massachusetts.

    An educator, Dr. Roseman has worked with children and parents since 1998 when he served as an advocate for joint custody and served with David L. Levy, Esq, President Emeritus of the Children’s Rights Council (CRC) in Washington, DC. In 2002-2008, Roseman served as Assistant Director for Child Access Services for the CRC developing training for supervised visitation and opening visitation locations in metro DC.

    Roseman frequently quotes America’s foremost pioneer in child psychiatry, Dr. Karl Menninger who stated that “What children see at home, they will do to society.” The Toby Center philosophy is that through assisting parents to be more confident and satisfied, their children will have a better opportunity to thrive.

    Roseman, a certified family mediator (FL) is a specialist in high conflict divorce, parental alienation, co-parenting and is a Certified Family Life Educator (CFLE). He writes for the Huffington Post Online, and was published in 400 newspapers nationally when a columnist (Family Matters) for the Knight Ridder Tribune Syndicate (2002-05). He earned his Ph.D. in Family Studies from the Union Institute & University.
