About Me

I am originally from Washington State, in a small town on the Columbia River. Growing up, I always enjoyed creative outlets like writing, dancing and music. For some time, I saw myself writing for Rolling Stone, covering up-and-coming bands and exploring my interest in music, then it was interior design or architecture. It wasn't until a friend pointed out how much I enjoyed teaching kindergartners a dance routine that I thought about teaching as a career.

I moved to Boston to attend Boston University and become an Early Childhood Educator. After graduating and meeting my husband, I spent several years teaching before my health became a major source of stress and negativity. I turned to sewing as a positive outlet, and have used that positive outlook ever since.

My two cats are a constant source of joy and comfort!

A lot has happened since I started this blog, but one thing that remains the same is that sewing has become a source of comfort and calm when life starts chucking those lemons! I've gotten married, finished all but one semester of my masters degree as a Reading Specialist, and in 2012 was finally surgically diagnosed with Endometriosis. After two surgeries, and one terrifying brush with life-threatening complications, I have decided to share my story with the world! I founded Ask Me About My Endo in February 2014 as a resource where women can find support, information, and opportunities for advocacy. I've got big ideas, and I can't wait to see what happens next!

  1. Hope you're doing alright! I've missed hearing from you!

  2. Hey, this is kinda random, but I'm writing a paper in school and it involves people interested in sewing. I looked all over your blog but I couldn't find your email address. Can you email it to me so that I can interview you? Thanks!


Thank you so much for visiting! I love to hear feedback!
