About me

Industry Education
Occupation Problem Solver
Location Chicago
Introduction I'm a married, working mother of 3. In my daydream life I have a horse ranch in Colorado where I live when not touring small clubs, because, you know, I'm a singer-songwriter. In real life I work in higher ed in Chicago, dabble with sewing and knitting for my Etsy shop, and keep saying that THIS will be the year I teach myself to play the guitar. I get hot & bothered by music, dance, social justice and stuff that makes me laugh.

When you've got water stuck in your ear, how do you get it out?

3 steps - guaranteed to work! 1 - tip your head to the side of whichever ear has water in it (so your ear is near your shoulder) 2 - hold your breath 3 - bounce up & down I promise it will work!
