Since the birth of my son, my diversity of hats is far reaching and overlapping. Obviously my role as wife, mother, and daughter are pivotal, but I can claim other, equally important identities that form my existence and ambitions. I’m a special educator by trade. More specifically, I’ve worked in various capacities with at-risk, delinquent, and incarcerated adolescents and adults. I am a licensed social worker, and try to incorporate these values to improve the world around me even if I do not strictly work in the field. I maintain a blog of my experiences as a mommy (http://taleoftwomommies.wordpress.com/) and a parenting social support and information Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/strollerderbysupportforparents), as well as create short stories and essays when inspiration strikes. Recently, I began volunteering for an agency providing rehabilitative programming for the Department of Corrections, and look forward to teaching a literacy class in one of the medium correctional facilities a couple of evenings a week.
