"I am a dedicated mom, engineer, and free spirited author."

I had my first son, Isaac in March 2004 and my second son, Joshua in 2005. When Josh was two years old my whole life changed--I learned my he had autism. It was at that moment when I realized that that everything I did and learned as I raised my typically developing son was not going to work for Joshua. I was a new mom learning from scratch.  As a mom of a special needs child I experienced an increase of senses, patience, understanding, and wonder but most importantly safety!

 

My writing hobby and safety advocacy began when I learned my young son escaped his school. He was rescued from being harmed by a car when he was found on a 50 mph road. I went to a safety workshop held by the Autism Alliance of Michigan and the information I learned along with the reality of the other parents that seemed to be overwhelmed with the lack of trust in their children’s safety in the schools, community, home drove me to want to want to share my experiences and research  I had done to help keep my kids safe.
