Issa is a born and bred New Yorker in the midst of her next big adventure, Single Mommyhood! This busy mama is trying to balance raising her son, a career as a freelance writer and advocate, and staying sane, all at the same time.

A passion for writing began early for Issa and she was presented her first award
for a piece of her writing at only 7 years old by then-New York City Mayor
Edward Koch, as a city-wide winner of a poetry contest. As a single parent life coach, Issa offers support to newly single parents facing myriad feelings and challenges, as well as to veteran single parents who may have hit a bump in their roads.

Issa is a published essayist; a New York Daily News featured blogger of the now defunct single motherhood blog, Single Mama NYC; writer of children's books for her son; and founder of Your Single Parenting, a resource
website inclusive of all single parents. You can find articles commissioned from Issa on iVillage, and H&R Block, as well as other locations both online and in print. You can watch a clip of her sharing
her expertise as a single parent in a WPIX11 news segment here.
