Well hello there! I think that people who click on “About Me” tabs are cool, just so you know.
I’m an American mother of 4 teens living in London. We moved here when the kids were 2, 4, 6 and 8 and if you think that was challenging, try doing that right after having a preventative double mastectomy with reconstruction (like Angelina Jolie, but with way less media coverage), lymph node removal surgery, 8 rounds of chemo and then a bilateral oopherctomy, while trying to keep things normal for the kids. Moving our family across an ocean was a breeze in comparison. I’m a breast cancer pre-vivor and survivor (rare but it’s a thing) and a staunch advocate of breast health.
I find humor in mostly everything which is important because, as I mentioned, I am currently the captain of a ship that has teens on board.
Former fashion marketing director, copy editor, cookie designer and PTA president . Current blogger and guest writer on the parenting website http://www.sammichespsychemeds.com.
The daily energy I expend outsmarting my teenage kids is equivalent to a 2 hour spin class done at a very high altitude, but more recently I’ve found my outlet in brain dumping into my blog. And writing a book about that whole breast cancer episode. Welcome and enjoy!
