A bit about me…

I’m a mom. I always wanted to be one. I’m blessed to have the little girl I always dreamed of having. Smart, hilarious and independent!

I am an educator. Personally and professionally. May you never stop learning.

I’m a positive person. We all have obstacles. I try to focus on the positive, but I am no Pollyanna. Life is all about being grateful for what you have.

I’m a quirky nerd who works in academia. Yet, I have no desire to get a Ph.D.

I am a progressive liberal socially and a bit more moderate financially. I am a pragmatist who follows politics and believes in the promise of these United States.

I have a completely embarrassing celebrity crush on Rachel Maddow.

I am committed to social justice. I believe we are all constantly evolving or should be. Works in progress, if you will.

I firmly believe that laughter is the best medicine.

I’m working on taking up more space in the world (not literally), but I believe as a woman I have been encouraged to stay small and accommodate everyone else’s needs before my own. I concurrently believe this is why so many women and mom’s are awesome and also why we are an unhealthy and messed up little society that abuses power and control.

I’m complicated.

This is me.

Me and my best girl
