Alexis Moses Dobbins is a writer, content consultant, and educator. Her upcoming advocacy project will highlight an initiative focused on improving communications between absentee fathers and the women who raise their children. While pursuing a career in broadcast media for more than 15 years, she intuitively knew that the lessons learned while rearing her two male children and negotiating the rocky road of dealing with an absentee father needed to be shared. Having studied the science of male/female relationships for more than 10 years, she has received training in the renowned “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” and the National Coalition Building Institute relationship-building programs. Alexis has a graduate degree in Adult Education and Leadership with a focus on family education, receiving awards for her work on African-American mothers and the impact of their parenting styles on male adolescent academic achievement. Her book on the subject of parents-in-absentia, “From Chaos to Communication” will be published in 2010 by her literary arm, writeRelations. Ms. Dobbins lives in suburban Maryland; points of contact include The Writers Helper, 'From Chaos to Communication', 'The Good in Him', Examiner - DC Single Moms.
