After obtaining my doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology and working for a total of 12 years in the field, I decided to stay at home to raise my four girls; three of whom were not yet school aged. My husband, girls and I reside in New Jersey.
You can read some of my backstory HERE.
During my time at home, I am focusing on both writing and speaking about caregiving and Autism with a special focus on teenage years and young adulthood.
I am a freelance writer contributing for the Parenting Channel at SheKnows, Suburban Life Magazine and on the holistic health resource WholesomeOne. My personal essays have appeared in the Philadelphia Inquirer, Mamalode Magazine, Stealing Time Literary Magazine, Pentimento, Suburban Life, Something Special Magazine and the South Jersey Times.
Currently I working on my first non-fiction book, a memoir of parenting a special child.
