I am just me.  I won't tell you how awesome I am but I am sure you'll figure it out.  (Not really.)  I am a mom, a wife, a friend.  I am also a 2 time cancer survivor.  I have been in radio for almost 16 years.  I am passionate about natural birthing and natural parenting.  I am in school to prepare for midwifery school.  I have had doula training and childbirth educator training.  I like life.  I am adventurous and silly.  I have a dark sense of humor.  I have little patience for ignorance.
