I spend my days learning backward. I live in the hallowed and messy trenches of being human. I think in metaphors. Drawing connections between people, ideas, conversations, behaviors, patterns, and data keeps my mind in flow. I live at the edge of discovery, at the beginning of possibility, and in the here and now. I am a mother, writer, artist, advocate, voice, creator, student, and teacher. I am a great beginner. I am me.
I am a freelance writer and artist with a penchant for personal narrative and storytelling. Other areas of interest include social justice, education, and education reform, politics, parenting special needs children, anxiety and mental illness, and autism.
