No, really. After burning out teaching public school, I am at a point in my life that most people go through in their 20s: I'm not sure what I want to be when I grow up! I love teaching, the non-profit sector, and anything arts-related, so I'm letting those things lead the way.

A couple years ago - at 37! - I received an ADHD diagnosis. Hindsight is 20/20 and I now believe my burnout was due to a lifetime of trying to function as a neurotypical person. I'm currently learning how to work with my brain instead of against it. My hope is that by being honest about my own path it will help others in similar situations.

Please poke around and read about the fun things I am doing. Maybe a portfolio career is what is right for me. Maybe a full-time job will come along that fits my music/non-profit/creative/neurodivergent brain. You can read a more official bio on the About page. I hope you will check back and keep in touch.



I am under construction.
