  • Hat #1 - I am currently a stay at home/work at home mom
  • Hat #2 - I am a wife (15 years this month!!)
  • Hat #3 - I am also a PSW student
  • Hat #4 - I am an advocate for my kids
  • Hat #5 - I am a therapist and researcher for my daughter who has an Acquired Brain Injury and GDD (global developmental delay)
    BUT...this week I am putting on my PARTY HAT!!
