Hi! I'm a former English Literature teacher and Kansas City transplant with 3 boys - 8, 6 and 3. I've fallen in love with the city and its people and enjoy exploring the area's coffee shops, libraries, art museums, and gardens when I'm not wrangling my three little ones. Raising a child with autism has given a passion for connecting with and providing resources for other moms with neurodiverse children. On a regular day, you can find me with my nose in a book, coffee in hand, and probably trying to take on WAY more than I have time for. I'm passionate and love finding other moms who are here to do life together and make the world better.
