One-Line Bio

We're Not in Kansas Anymore, Toto. Oh, wait. Yes we are.


I'm a working mom, a working wife, and a working homemaker. Some things I do better than others.

I have an English degree from Texas Christian University. I used to like to write long, researched, thesis-like papers on Shakespeare's treatment of women in his plays. It was boring for everyone but me.

I spent 14 years in advertising - agency side, client side, and executive recruiter side. I watch the Super Bowl for the ads.

I also have a Education degree from Avila University. I taught elementary computers for 5 years in a public school district. Now I teach computers and technology in a K-12 private school.

These days I don't write much, but when I do I write about parenting, education, pop culture, and occasionally politics. These things seem to have a broader appeal to people on the internet than Shakespeare chicks.

A few things you need to know about me, if we are to become pals:

1. I am a dog person. The bigger, the better. In fact, I prefer dogs to people most
of the time.
2. I have two teenage boys. There is a lot of testosterone floating around in my
3. I am a liberal feminist, but I still expect you to hold the door for me.
4. I am a visual learner. Podcasts and audiobooks are worthless to me.
5. I like Jesus Christ. I do not like people who claim to love Him, but are really
6. I don't watch reality TV. I can't handle people embarrassing themselves.
7. This applies to Will Ferrell, Ben Stiller, Jim Carrey, and Amy Sedaris. Chris
Elliot is the Antichrist, thankfully he doesn't show up much anymore.
8. I have a history of depression, which is well managed. I don't usually mention
this right out the gate, but I'm getting tired of losing people I care about
because nobody wants to talk about mental illness. Get over it.
9. I like to drink wine. I like talking about it more than actually doing it.
10. I cuss. A lot. Like a fucking sailor. Let it go.
