About Me

I live in St. Louis, Missouri.  South county, to be more specific.  I live with my husband Tom, and with Picasso, who is 6 and in first grade, and Cassatt, who is 4 and in preschool. I love having mornings free with Cassatt to play, go to the library, and visit the great museums in the area.

I am heavily involved in CHADD (Children and Adults with ADHD); I am the coordinator of our local chapter.  And I write. Most of my writing right now is short fiction, which you can read over at my other blog, Fiction as Life.  I have been published in MOPS’s Hello Darling blog and in ADDitude Magazine, and have a poem that was published in When Women Waken, an online literary journal.

Before I was a mom, I was a lawyer. I went to Washington University for law school, and after that I started my own law practice. I practiced family law and advocated for families working through the IEP process at school. I am passionate about helping kids with disabilities succeed, especially kids with invisible disabilities like ADHD and autism. My law license is currently inactive. I do keep active with my advocacy work through CHADD, however, and through MPACT.  For a while, I had a series about Advocating for your Child on this blog.

    With names like that, even if they are pseudonyms to protect the innocent, you must be an art lover.
