CONTRIBUTOR

I am a complex gal who’s had some unique life experiences and I face some barriers and challenges in my day to day life. I’m learning to not let them slow me down or dampen my spirits. I love writing, music, psychology, social justice, sociology, and listening to and learning about other people’s stories and experiences. I also enjoy sharing my own. Through my writing, I hope to use my unique human experience to teach, inspire and advocate for others who may be facing challenges and adversity in their live paths.

I’ve also got several years of experience supporting children, youth and adults with developmental disabilities, mostly autism spectrum disorders. More recently I’ve developed an interest in community harm reduction work and volunteer my time with a couple of local organizations. In the future, I’d like to share about my experiences as a professional who’s got disabilities and is in recovery from an addiction.
