I am a freelance writer, yoga teacher, and stay-at-home mom to two young boys. Currently, I live on Camp Lejeune Marine Base where I also teach yoga. My essays have appeared in the San Diego Reader, Runner’s World and various coffee table books.
I have a BS degree in Biology from Cornell University and a minor in English Literature. Before my children were born, I worked for almost a decade as a copywriter and scientific writer both in-house and for advertising agencies.
Now, I am more likely to be found with a pail and shovel on the beach, on the trail following two aspiring, young mountain bikers, or more likely, picking up Legos at home. My favorite quote about motherhood comes from Lindsey Mead Russell who writes that “motherhood is both enormous and tiny.” It is like quicksilver, transforming from minute to minute. More than any other experience in my life, motherhood has taught me about the incandescence of moments, the importance of kindness, and how to be still.
