Social worker by day, social media consumer by night (by day, too).
Pittsburgh native that I am, I grew up in the Mon Valley and now live on the North Side with my partners of 10+ years (Ledcat) and our pets. I'm a social worker by trade with a fondness for social media, coffee, soap operas and cat memes. 

I've been blogging at Pittsburgh Lesbian Correspondents since 2005. I also contribute to Huffington Post, Bilerico and BlogHer. I cofounded the Pittsburgh Women's Blogging Society and now serve as a manager for the Pittsburgh Bloggers. 

Bragging rights
I'm just a lesbian who write a blog. People sometimes get mad, but they usually get over it.
