I wear a lot of hats. Luckily, I'm a hat person.

Currently part of the parent advocacy & engagement teams for the National Center for Learning Disabilites (NCLD) & Understood.org, I help connect parents of kids with leaning and attention issues to education and resources to help their children thrive.

As a freelance writer, social media and content marketing consultant I create well-voiced, consistent messaging, original content & social strategy that engage and empower a variety of audiences.

And, as a parent advocate and freelance essayist I write, blog, talk and tweet about removing stigma and creating equal access to education for kids (like mine) with differences and disabilities.

Trained as a journalist, I have strong experience in writing, marketing, change management consulting, corporate communications and public relations.
