I’m 35 years old, and I live in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. I have been married to my one true love and soul mate, Daniel, for 15 and a half years, and we have been together for nearly 20 years. Together we have two amazing children: our daughter Alyssa, who turns 16 this coming October; and our autistic son Ryan, who turns 14 this coming July. We’re also cat parents to two adorable female kittens, Gersemi and Bastet.
As if a husband, two teenagers, and two kittens aren’t enough, I’m also a full-time college student at Harrisburg Area Community College – I’m going for my Associates Degree in Web Development and Design.
Two and a half lost years ago we lost our home, and not too long after I hit my emotional rock bottom. A year ago I got my shit together, and my journey ever since has been about rebuilding not just my family, but my physical and especially my mental and emotional health.
