- Self-EmployeedFreelance Writer and Editor, presentI'm a writer, editor, and creative writing instructor. I'm the fertility expert for About.com, where I write on all aspects of fertility and trying to conceive. I blog, I article, I poem, and I story. (In short, I write!) I'm a book author, and I've ghostwritten. I've also held a variety of editorial positions, including assistant editorial positions at magazines and development editing at a book publisher. Did I mention writing? Yes, I do that, too.
- My FamilyHomeschooling, presentAnyone who tells you that homeschooling isn't a full-time job is lying. Lying, I tell you! It is also a labor of love. What else beside love would compel anyone to have their children home all day, eating all day, making noise all day, at home... ALL DAY! Seriously, though, homeschooling is awesome. And all day.
My passion is helping women make informed and empowered decisions regarding fertility, pregnancy, birth, and beyond. I’m the author of three books: Birth Plans for Dummies (with coauthor Sharon Perkins), The Doula Advantage, and the FabJob Guide to Become a Doula. I also write about fertility for About.com. Besides the womb-warrior mission, I’m the mother of four children, a voracious reader, and gaga for all things writing.
