I grew up in a small town in southeastern Missouri, but the place I now call home is St. Louis. I moved to the “big city” when I was 18 to attend Lindenwood University, where I majored in Theater Studies. After two years, I realized that while I loved the theater, I wasn’t in love with acting anymore. I wanted to be behind the scenes; I wanted to do something that made a difference. This is not to say that acting doesn’t have an impact on people’s lives, but it no longer had one on mine. That’s when I decided I would become a teacher. I ended up earning my degree in secondary education, specifically speech and theater studies.
Unfortunately for me, teaching is something I have put on the back burner…for now. There are lots of reasons (too many to list) why teaching isn’t a good fit for me right now. That’s OK. Maybe I’ll teach in a few years. Maybe I’ll never step foot in a classroom again. But one thing’s for certain: I will never fall out of love with education.
So, for now, I live, love, and write in my
cozy downtown apartment quaint suburban ranch house with my three sweet kitties and my severely handsome boyfriend fiance.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read my blog. I might be the only one in the world who thinks I am a talented writer, or that my stories are awesome. But, at least I’ve found a place where my voice is heard.
