I have an educational background in Language Arts.
I hold a B.A in English with a minor in Journalism. I have been a professional freelance writer for the last six years. Please click here to see samples of my work.
I have loved to write ever since I was able to hold a pencil.
When I was small, I was painfully shy. I also had a severe speech impediment and I found that I could express myself far better through my writing than with spoken words.
Over the years I grew more confident in my voice, but my love for writing never went away.
One of the first things I learned about writing is to write what you know, so for the past several years, that is what I have been doing. As a parent of children with special needs, I have a unique perspective on a lot of issues that go along with the territory, as I grew up with special needs myself.
Through my writing, I aspire not only to advocate, but educate and raise awareness of the many issues that parents of special needs kids face on daily basis.
Special needs parenting is a beautiful whirlwind of tough challenges, personal growth, and unconditional love, but it can also be quite isolating. If I can help one person to feel not so alone on this journey, then I have done my job well.
