MORE ABOUT ME
WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW?
Like anyone with chronic illness, while much of my life is focused on managing disease activity, I am so much more than any one label. But since I live with autoimmunity, I make myself and my health a priority: this where my passion for the Paleo diet and healthy, green living comes from.
I hope you stopped by here to find some inspiration, whether it be about healthy living, organic beauty, Paleo recipes, or living well with chronic illness.
THE GAL BEHIND THE BLOG
I’m a forty-something native Texan turned New Yorker, living in the Mid West. I am also an English teacher, and now a technophobe blogger (which I still cannot believe).
I am a late bloomer. After floundering around in college for what seemed like forever (probably longer if you ask my dad) eventually obtaining a culinary degree, an English degree, and an MS in education, I finally felt like a grown-up. Well, for the most part. I started my career late, found and married the love of my life late, and had our beautiful daughter at, “an advanced maternal age” (their words, not mine).
I also found my true calling late: helping others live their best lives in spite of it all. I have always been interested in healthy living and motivating others, but after my rheumatoid arthritis diagnosis, it became a passion.
I am married to my best friend and we have an amazing daughter and a Siberian cat named Tatum (aka Tatey, Tater Tot, Tater, Floofer, and Fluffy Butt). I adore our little family.
