Thank you for visiting my portfolio page. Below you will find samples of some of my favorite current and past projects.

Every wonder what life is like behind the scenes of some of your favorite blogs? Wish you could curl up with a mug of tea (or a glass of wine) and chat with with your favorite blogger? Yeah. Me too.

I created the podcast Behind the Blog in November of 2011 to scratch below the surface, deepen the conversation and bring us all a little closer together as we find our way through the maze of social media, blog stats, incoming links, likes, shares and what it means for our work and for our families.

I post a new show on the third Thursday of each month and often host a follow-up Facebook chat with my guest.

Shortly after my first child was born in 2004, I felt a deep need for additional options, stronger community and more support for birthing women and families in Rhode Island. In conversations with fellow yoga teachers and doulas we dreamed about how wonderful it would be to have a strong network of support for gentle, respectful, evidence-based care during the childbearing years.

With the help of many wonderful parents and birth professionals, I launched what is now the RI Birth Network in the spring of 2005. I am honored to continue to serve RIBN in an advisory role.

As Marketing Director for Pat’s Pastured, a sustainable diversified farm specializing in grass-fed and pasture-raised meats, I helped to connect a (very!) busy farmer with his customers and CSA members by maintaining the website, sending monthly e-newsletters and responding to customer requests. I also greatly enjoyed taking photographs of the beautiful farm scenery, many of which I shared on the Pat’s Pastured blog.

I am very proud to be a contributing writer at Kidoinfo. I love being part of the community that Anisa Raoof has created, both virtually and here in Providence and was thrilled to be a panelist for the first KidoConversations event, Parents Using Social Media.

Power MomsMy essay, The Greatest Gift, on my decision to return to work after being home with my children for several years, was published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Power Moms, in May, 2009.

I was able to be part of a small book tour here in Rhode Island to help promote the book and also traveled to New York City (for the first time!) for a press event with many of the contributors to the book.

Dear LilyMy essay, Dear Lily, a letter written to my daughter when she weaned just shy of her third birthday, was published by Mothering.com – the Web site of Mothering Magazine in 2007.

I have connected with many beautiful mothers who reached out to me after reading this essay.
