About Me

Lover of Literature and Bookstores. Healthcare Professional by day and writer by night. A Storyteller. Always a Mother. I strive to captivate through writing the raw honesty on parenting, relationships, child development, co-parenting, divorce, and the good moments as well as the bad. The scary feelings and the welcome ones too. The need for a break from parenting and the need to embrace in imperfect parenting and everything in between can be found here on MoreThanMothers.

Previously published on Huffington Post, Disney’s Babble, LiteraryMamma, WorkingMotherMag, BraInChildMag, TheNatPath, Mamamia, HerViewFromHome, TheToddle, ThriveGlobal, Scary Mommy, The Mighty, Oc87Recovery, Parent.com and many more lifestyle websites. I have also created content for Healthcare Providers including Social Media and Blog posts as well as ghostwritten professional articles for physicians and mental health providers.
