Femme in STEM

Imposter syndrome is real, and it exists. I’m a woman working in technology, but frequently I have to remind myself of that fact. I have many thoughts on this subject, and it really deserves its own, separate, fully thought-out and fleshed-out discussion. A blog post for another day. For today, I want to let you all […]

In the News

One of the things that I don’t talk about very much is the fact that I am partially deaf. This is a genetic condition and I have been wearing hearing aids for more than 25 years now. This is a simple part of who I am and an additional facet to my person and character. […]

However, when I moved to a new apartment in the beginning of September my nutritionist and I decided to take a break. This is not a bad thing! But we decided that– what with my crazy schedule, along with where […]

Scale Down

I have written in the past about my efforts to get healthier over the past year or so. After the DVT/PE I suffered last summer, I was especially motivated to get my life on (a better) track. I started seeing my trainer regularly. I started going to a nutritionist. I ran. I gave up pizza. […]

New Reality

So, it’s weird. I’ve lost a fair amount of weight over the past year. Enough that I am able to go, pick up a size S dress from a sidewalk sale, buy it without trying it on, take it home and have it fit perfectly. I mean, literally perfect. Love that this is my new […]
