Social Worker/Editor/Writer in Durham, North Carolina

Read my blog

A native New Yorker living in NC who has become accustomed to wearing flip flops year-round. A licensed clinical social worker, I spend my free time volunteering for various organizations to support individuals in need and remind them that they are not alone.

I blog over at Good Girl Gone Redneck, where I share the ins and outs of parenting and family, relationships and loss, writing from the heart. As reading is critical to my everyday life you'll also find me spending A LOT of time recommending books to my friends.
