Ishtar is the founder of parentEASY.ca. Over the past 10 years she has worked with young children with autism and their families. She has also worked in community programs aimed at helping children with anger issues cope with their feelings.

Ishtar has a honours psychology degree from the University of Waterloo and a Masters of Science degree in Family Dynamics and Child Development from the University of Guelph. She resides in Hamilton, Ontario with her 2 spirited children and husband.
