A little bit about me
I am a writer, speaker, and consultant focused on empowering people, communities, and organizations facing transformation opportunities. I am an advisor to Chicago’s 2nd Story and formerly served on the board of Critical Mass: the Young Adult Cancer Alliance. 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. In 2018, my remarkable husband, Michael, our two adorable cats, and I transplanted ourselves from Chicago to the Hudson River Valley, where I now serve as an elected trustee for the Village of Rhinebeck and occasional whoopie pie baker for Samuel’s Sweet Shop. WAIT, IT GETS WORSE is my first book.
