I am a native Texan who has also called Oregon, Germany, The Czech Republic, and Montana home over the years.

I spent my teens and early twenties being a wild child.

I became a mother unintentionally, but have embraced the role with every ounce of my being. I have transformed from party-girl lush to loving mama and entrepreneur over the past seven years, trading my late nights for early mornings and cocktails for coffee. 

Mother of Wildthings is where I write about life raising three sons while balancing a career and trying to overcome general  anxiety disorder.
