I'm a mindful explorer of the inner & outer worlds, which means you'll find that I write just as much about emotions, the mind, and our complex inner worlds as I do current events and social issues. As someone who’s multi-passionate, I have varied interests and often pursue them all at once (for better or worse!). For example, I have a well-established career in communications and am currently pursuing a second master's degree in clinical social work. I also have an M.A. in creative writing and taught English at the college level during an earlier iteration of my career. And I have a long-time yoga and meditation practice (over 20 years) and am formally trained in mindfulness. I don’t profess to be an expert on any of these things, but instead, someone who is constantly learning and inspired to share what I discover.
