Writer of compelling content. Scientist.
Public speaker. Educator. Advocate.

I wear many hats.

But there is one hat that I never take off: Neurodivergent SuperMom.

My son, Steven, is part of the 2.3% of the US population that is autistic. The prevalence of autism has risen steadily since the CDC first started tracking it in 2000, and it is estimated that 20-40% of the population is neurodivergent. 

And yet, when Steven was diagnosed, I felt alone. Frustrated. Overwhelmed. 

Sound familiar?

As a parent of a neurodivergent or special needs child, it’s important to feel that
you are not alone.

I spent years learning how to navigate the journey of raising a neurodivergent child. I did tons of research – as a scientist, it’s what I am trained to do – to find the best ways to support Steven and provide him the tools he needed to achieve his potential, and even more importantly, support myself. During this time of discovery, I came to the realization that I am also neurodivergent

Because I am both a neurodivergent individual, as well as a parent to one,
I offer a unique perpective on neurodiversity.

I’ve been sharing my stories about parenting Steven (and his faithful sidekick/little sister, Olivia) through social media channels for a number of years – including the good, the not-so-good, and the often funny – and have received a tremendous response. Today, I continue to share my personal journey as a neurodivergent mom of a neurodivergent kid, while cultivating a supportive community for those who have a personal relationship with a neurodivergent individual.
