Renée Adams

Renée is a children’s book author and the founder/owner of the Calm In Your Palm®, Hoppy & Poppie PinkCheeks™ and Learn.Love.EQ.™ brands. She and her team enthusiastically and diligently create and develop books for toddlers and babies along with entertaining and relatable characters/products. The stories and products focus on well-being and teaching children (and their parents) emotional intelligence and make learning fun. Renée is a certified Goleman Emotional Intelligence coach, a Whole Modern Parent emotional intelligence “Collective Expert” and serves on the board of the non-profit, My Conscious Coaching Group.

She has recently launched two baby and toddler board books, Hoppy and Poppie character plush, the "Patoo" character blanket and EI/EQ wristbands (Happy, Sad, Excited, Scared, Angry and Calm) for the Hoppy & Poppie PinkCheeks™ brand! The setting is Bug Island, an enchanting place full of imagination, inspired by her home state of Colorado. The main characters are twin grasshoppers, Hoppy & Poppie PinkCheeks. They explore and share their Bug Island home with Queen Betty Bee, Chief Franco Firefly, Maestro Humphrey Hummingbird, King Walt Worm, Aunt Andie Ant, Dr. Spinner Spider, Patoo, the flying blanket, and more. The "Not SO Scary" and "What We Feel" books teach children, ages 0+, the most basic foundation of emotional intelligence including learning the names and being aware of feelings. She has written three downloadable digital Guides for parents or grandparents of young children, sharing key tools for teaching emotional intelligence to young children, such as how to name, understand and manage one’s emotions, manage the emotions of others, live mindfully, and be empathetic and compassionate with oneself and others.

Renée has a B.S. in Speech Communication from The University of Texas in Austin, TX. Since graduating from college and prior to her current entrepreneurial business, she has worked in multiple industries and pursued a variety of endeavors including being an account executive in telecom, a counselor for homeless adolescent girls, full-time parent, volunteer for non-profits, Boy Scout and Girl Scout leader and co-owner of a home health and hospice business. She spends most of her free time with family and friends, cycling, hiking, camping, skiing, reading, meditating and writing.
Renée has two sons, two daughters-in-law, a daughter and a granddaughter due 1-22-21. At this stage in her life, she loves to partner with parents of younger children along the heartfelt journey of raising happy children who thrive.

Daniel Tigert

Daniel is Creative Director of Calm In Your Palm®, contributing his artistic talents as illustrator of the What We Feel and Not SO Scary books and designer of the Calm In Your Palm’s Hoppy & Poppie PinkCheeks™, Learn.Love.EQ.™ and Airlits™ brands. Dan credits his work developing stories, characters, and educational materials for parents of young children as having a profound and immeasurable positive influence on his own role as a parent and helping his child learn feelings and emotions.

Daniel began work on developing the Hoppy & Poppie PinkCheeks brand in conjunction with the birth of his only son, Fields. The interplay and influence of these two events upon one another, have been formative for him, both personally and professionally. Daniel feels that the lessons within Hoppy & Poppie’s adventures reflect many of his own discoveries on his parenting journey. He hopes that his experiences as a first time parent, combined with Calm In Your Palm’s founder; Renée Adam’s expertise, will directly inform the brand’s effectiveness as an applicable tool for parents who wish to role-model high emotional intelligence.

Daniel has a B.F.A. in Graphic Design from the University of Central Oklahoma. Since graduating from college, he has been co-owner of a business focused on coaching youth and adults in pursuit of their individualistic athletic goals. He has concluded his career as a professional endurance athlete, though he still competes recreationally in the sport of cycling. He looks forward to seeing what passions his son, Fields, will choose to pursue in his own life. Daniel feels honored to have the opportunities offered by fatherhood, and hopes to share the measured balance, awareness, and satisfaction that comes from growing in emotional intelligence through the toddler and baby and books and other educational material he helps create. He has earned a Certificate of Completion from the Goleman Emotional Intelligence Coaching Program.

"...an investment in a child’s ability to emotionally adapt and thrive..."

Jennifer Gilmore

“This complete set of emotional intelligence skill-building tools is an investment in a child’s ability to emotionally adapt and thrive...At 10 years of age, Jocelyn has taken the wristbands for herself. She pops them on daily as a way to outwardly express her feelings. I must admit, I like it knowing what my tween is thinking without her ever having to say a word.”
