I am a former educator of nearly twenty years. My educational background includes teaching second grade, elementary media specialist, middle school television production teacher and middle school media specialist.

After my fourth child was diagnosed with ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder, I left my full-time teaching career so I would have the flexibility to meet the demands of this special parenting role.

Currently, I run the Big Abilities Blog and Podcast. I am also a freelance writer for Playground Magazine and a contributing author at The Mighty. I recently published the book It Takes a Village: Get Your Hands Dirty and Build Yours From the Ground Up which is a guide to helping special needs families build a support system.

When I am not busy writing or podcasting, my family and I enjoy traveling, sports, and the wonderful weather in our home state of Florida.
