As someone who "makes stuff" for a living, I know that I'm responsible for what I put out into the world. So why not let it be a true reflection of me? I'm flawed, sometimes crass, opinionated as all get out, and I don't back down (to a fault).

I am new kindergarten mom. I believe in community and wanted to become involved right away. I got lucky and became the coordinator for Red Ribbon Week (RRW).
