I’m a social worker and single mother to two girls, my daughter and niece, both in the throes of their teenage years. 

I want to speak whatever it is I feel I need to, what’s in my heart, as I continue to navigate my past, present and future. 

Writing helps all the thoughts in my head take shape and gives me moments of peace in my darkest times and fills me with joy in my happiest. I love feeling inspired by something and feeling the words pour out. It isn’t a gift I was always open to, but now that I am, I intend to keep doing it.
