Welcome to Not an Autism Mom!

It’s been almost three years since I started this blog. As you can imagine, a lot has changed in that time! This website is where you’ll find my articles.

If you’re looking for me out-and-about, I’m most active on Facebook. My page is called, wait for it… Not an Autism Mom! Clever, huh?

I’ve also started an amazing book club on Facebook called That Au-Some Book Club. In the group, we learn about autism by reading books that either have autistic authors, or are recommended by the autistic community. You should join us!

As the book club has grown, we started interviewing the authors of the books we’re reading. And as usual, that experience has been incredible! If you’d like to see those interviews, you can find them on my brand new YouTube channel called, you guessed it… Not an Autism Mom!

A little info about me…

I live in Virginia with my husband and our four boys. We have a blended family. ❤

I graduated from Virginia Wesleyan College about ten years ago. I then spent five amazing years teaching elementary math and science. It was pretty much my dream job. I was the real-life Ms. Frizzle.

When the twins came along, I stopped teaching and never went back.

I mostly write about autism, prematurity, and parenting. But I also enjoy reflecting on life experiences, people, and issues in our society.
