Since 2002, I have published more than 250 articles on MOMMY MUSINGS – a reflective parenting blog containing stories celebrating motherhood and its resulting conundrums.
Like many first time moms, I started blogging to chronicle my son’s life, but it became more than writing about poop and teeth. I discovered my voice, which grew stronger every day.
My stories became my art.
In 2015, I was one of only 13 cast members selected for Rochester’s first-ever Listen to Your Mother (LTYM), a live staged-reading event to give local women and men a forum to share their motherhood stories in celebration of Mother’s Day. I read my story “Tangled In Leather,” which can now be seen and heard on YouTube (please feel free to view, like and share!)
I’ve authored hundreds of stories that have appeared in publications such as: DaKa Magazine, Rochester Woman Magazine, Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, Rochester Magazine, (where I was featured on the cover of the February, 2014 issue.) I’m a former columnist of the popular “Woman to Watch” column for the Democrat and Chronicle, and a contributor of lifestyle and feature stories. I’ve even won an award for inspirational stories.
In addition to writing professionally for more than 20 years, I spent 15 years in advertising and public relations, and six years in non-profit marketing. Currently, I am a marketing communications manager for a leading global supplier of security, safety, and communications products and systems.
One thing I know for sure is that I will continue to write and share stories. This is my art.
Thanks for stopping by.
