In the course of my life I have been many things: a librarian, a lawyer, a writer, and an editor. I currently work in the parish office of a Catholic Church.
I have worked in the public sector, the private sector, and the not for profit sector. Over these many years, I’ve also cleaned other people’s houses, watched other people’s children, worked security, delivered newspapers, tutored kids, and helped more than one STEM type learn to write a decent paper, sometimes for pay and sometimes for love.
I have kids who are in the midst of navigating their way from middle school through adulthood.
I think that I have lived more of my life through what I have done beyond my professional life — Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts and then Boy Scouts, baseball, softball, soccer, music, and theater.
