About

Publicist: For ten years I've dedicated myself to Dreamers and Doers (formerly RenProject), and the kids we help (currently four Russian boys, now men). It has been a crazy ride that involved some good, some bad, and a lot of ugly. Somehow through out the experience, I have always thought to myself, "I want to do this again...and again." According to my mom, this doesn't make sense. "Get married! Have your own kids!" she bellows at me, but some of us aren't meant to fit the standard mold.

Molds are for jello and the loaf of bread you forgot about in the back of the pantry.

In an effort to keep alive my dream to help more kids, I realized I had to do something I hate to do...share our story. I am a very private person by nature, and I certainly don't do things for the "look at me!" thrill of doing something good. I do this work because it is deeply rewarding.

Despite my introverted ways, I am also a person who likes to jump in with both feet; consequences be damned. This time was no different; I didn't just make a small video or write a blog about the boys; I wrote a book. Yes, I know, it even surprised me (not to mention dear ol' mom!)

So what, anyone can write a book, right? That's true, but our book is about ten years of mayhem, anger, love, swearing and way too frequent nudity (hey, the boys are European). But more importantly, our book is about the force of good defying the odds, overcoming the evil, and fulfilling dreams against all the odds. This narrative may sound like your standard book promotion nonsense, but in our case, it’s 100% true.

Being an elementary teacher by day, my skill set at promoting to anyone over four feet tall is not my strong suit. I'm sure with enough time and energy I could probably fake something, but I thought it would be better to find someone could help me. As a teacher, I know the value of a teacher versus the learning everything from Google and Youtube (although that Crazy Russian Hacker has taught me some awesome things.)

So, I need your help! If you have the skillset, ideas, connections, and such that I am lacking and are willing to work for no money and no budget (for now! Let's dream big here!) then sending me a message. This is position is not for the weak, but for those who are up for going on a great adventure. I am an eager student, a hard worker, and 100% authentic in wanting to see this vision through.

(Please note: Due to my teaching schedule, email is the easiest way to contact me.)
