A little bit about me
I am an advocate, speaker, and writer focused on empowering people, communities, and organizations faced with daunting change. My blog HairOptional.com was started to share updates about my treatment for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma with family and friends and continued after I was declared cancer-free to dispatch reports from the wilderness of survivorship. I serve on the advisory board to 2nd Story and the governing board of I AM THAT GIRL, an organization that encourages young women around the world to take ownership of their self-worth. Recently transplanted from Chicago, I live in Rhinebeck, NY with my husband and two adorable cats. Wait, It Gets Worse is my first book.
