About me

Occupation Editor and Writer
Location Richmond, Virginia, United States
Introduction I live in Richmond, VA, with my husband Bobby, a Presbyterian minister, and our three sons: Cole (9), Dean (7), and Emmett (5.5). Dean was diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) at 3 weeks old and this blog is mostly about life with a child with PWS. Currently, I work from home as a freelance editor and writer and take care of the boys. I play in a local "alternafolkrock" band called wkndr ( We have a blast. :) Occasionally, I sleep at night. I have an M.A. in Counseling (Marriage & Family Therapy concentration) and a B.A. in Early Childhood Education and Human Development, neither of which drive my current work, but both inform my daily life.
