Occupation Organization Development Psychologist
Location Boston, United States
Introduction On a rainy Saturday at 3:01pm on November 9th,2002 Ellie was born three months early at 27 weeks and 5 days weighing 2 pounds 9 ounces and 14" long, (HUGE for a 27-weeker). Against all odds, a 9.5 minute anoxic ischemic event, grade 3 IVH, acquired hydrocephalus, cerebral palsy, severe reflux, PVL, and seizures she is healing, thriving and the love of our lives. I am grateful every day that she is still here with me filling my life with love and wonder. I call her my warrior princess. This is our story.
Interests I live with my sweet husband and beautiful daughter in a ramshackle house in the Shire that is New England. We left the perpetual summer of the city of angels in order to save Ellie's life via Boston's superior medical care. I wear many hats: mother, wife, organizational psychologist, artist, writer and unexpected navigator on a journey through the world of disability.

If you could peer far enough into the night sky, you'd see a star in any direction you looked. When would you sleep?

After morning had broken and the stars were obscured by the sun.
