Who am I?

Oh hai..When the caterpillar asks, “Who Are You?”, I’d reply, “I am tragic, unusual, and alive. I embrace life as a wonderland of nonsense, in which I can be a lost boy or a wild thing.”

At work, I am an Urban Anthropologist. Sorry, my career has nothing to do with bones, CSI, pottery, or dinosaurs. I am an Admission & Intakes Manager for people with Intellectual Disabilities! I love meeting with families, hearing their stories, and finding how to support their service needs.

My career philosophy...I heavily BELIEVE in Macy’s Santa, i.e why say no?! Just put the individual first and try to provide support-even if it’s not us there are so many people and places in the world; keep hope alive..

(How is this relevant to the swapping world? Well, I love funky post-its, day planner stickers, agenda coding-type items)

At home, within my wonderland, I enjoy promoting my husband and I recently became temporary respite foster parents to a variety of ages. Our organization focuses on re-building the family, supporting community, and growing stronger by learning from each other. We love hearing from fellow fosters because experience, history, and advice comes from the most unique places.

How is this relevant to the swapping world? Shy of a good letter to connect; whether it’s love, advice, inspiration, strength… we also could use stuff for daily projects; stickers, sensory-based items, black-out poetry, board game ideas, fidgets..swap it my way!

Beyond fostering, my identity is also Dog Mom. Yes, my dogs have their own Instagram (theunkforgettabledawgs). We recently lost our two senior medical needs pooches and adopted our first ‘real dog’ as we call her. A 3yr old pit bull mix, w.a big head, big floppy ears, and a bundle of loveable energy. I say real dog because this is our first experience with a dog motivated by treats, into long walks, who has the ‘zoomies’. It’s a crazy experience to suddenly have to watch out for food left on the counter, put up a gate to close off rooms, and not leave my slippers wherever I want…but gotta love that #dogmom life!

When my husband and I are actually home alone. No kids, dog finally taking a nap, we enjoy discovering treasures at thrift stores, finding a good tree to climb while hiking, playing volleyball, designing themed board game nights, and in between all of that reading non-stop.

Favorite Books

Books are my obsession. Books, book clubs, book blogs, goodreads (montigneyrules), sitting in libraries, etc.

I dream of bookshelves wonderfully organized.

i can list what i love to read forever & forever....

How does one even truly pick ‘favorite books’, ‘favorite genre’, ‘favorite author’? It is all so complex to breakdown…my attempt:

If I’m stranded on an island, I’d read forever over and over:

Haunted (chuck palahniuk), History of Love (nicole krauss), Starless Sea (erin morgernstern), Where the Wild Things Are (expanded edt. david eggers) & Alice in Wonderland

The books I recommend to people the most (not previously listed above):

Incarnations (susan barker), Brief History of the Dead (kevin brockmeier), Fever (laurie anderson), Reincarnation Blues (michael poole), & Forty Rooms (olga grushin)

Hearts, Stars, and Horsehoes

Other Things I Rather Enjoy:



-Blackout poetry

-Vintage postcards of people, where you guess what the true story scene is

-Pin-up girls

-Favorite color is purple

-List-based stationary


-Cooking; anything recipe related

-Washi Tape

Favorite Music

Skinny Lister. Greatest Showman Soundtrack. Of Monsters and Men. Will Varley. Flogging Molly. Flobots. Skrillex. Big D and the Kid's Table. Bad Religion, B.O.B. Chase Hoelfelder.

Favorite Television

I love watching Survivor (I've seen every season, I'm beyond obsessed).

Bobs Burgers is a close second obsession.

Psych, Are You Being Served? Grey's Anatomy, The Office, Dead Like Me, Parks and Rec., Meerkat Manor, Avatar the Last Airbender

recently, I've marathoned Dr. Who. Now I can finally commit to the awesome fandom!

My Maybe Not List

If you can please keep in mind:

I don't like ATCs

-No hats/scarves

-I absolutely hate dolphins

-I'm beyond terrified of birds

-I'm not a huge fan of animal print

-I don't eat peanut butter

-I think butterflies are ugly

-Christmas colors outside of December irk me
