It all started when I was 20 days late out of the womb. I’ve been late in getting nearly every memo since then, but I’ve learned a hell of a lot along the way. The older I get, the better life gets (and if it hasn’t been your experience already, it can be). I’ve crafted the skill of resiliency the way some people master the guitar. I can find the comedy, or at the very least the lesson, in every situation. It’s never too late. In fact, it’s better late.
After several interruptions, I graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication, where I focused primarily on interracial & intercultural communication, rhetorical criticism, gender studies, and film. I obtained an Associate’s Degree in Psychology in Santa Fe, New Mexico, after extensive studies of art, acting and psychology, including abnormal psychology, the psychology of addiction, human sexuality and counseling.
I spent three years as the sole web editor for WINK News (the CBS affiliate for Southwest Florida), have contributed feature articles to several news publications, and have written copy for everyone from real estate agencies to lifestyle bloggers.
I’ve got a plethora of experience in family dysfunction, I’m on marriage numero dos, I’m a mother to both a toddler and a teenager, I drink Riesling, I still check out library books and I say the word fuck. I’m not sorry for any of those things.
I currently live in the metro Detroit area, after a lifetime as a native Floridian, and a short period in beautiful Santa Fe, New Mexico.
