So, who am I, anyway?

As is obvious in my blog address and its tagline, I am visually impaired – blind, if you prefer (I won’t get mad at you for using the word). This is by no means the only aspect to my life. I am not what many people expect. I’m an athlete, a bookworm, a jewelry designer, a musician, an animal lover, a writer, a dreamer, and all-round in-your-face kinda gal. I love fiercely but selectively; I dream impulsively and then plan relentlessly; anything worth doing is worth throwing everything you have behind it. I smile easily, laugh loudly, am fiercely opinionated, and yet I think of tons of angles.

When I am not stirring up trouble, bridging the world between those who can see and those who cannot, you will likely find me curled up on the couch with a good book, running around the streets of my city, playing board games with friends and family, or hanging out somewhere drinking too much coffee. I guess I am lucky that I am a relatively social person, as my guide dog, Jenny, seems to gain attention everywhere we go, sometimes for good and sometimes… not so much.

I am always interested in blog post ideas, particularly if they relate to living as a blind person who simply wants to be treated “normally”. While that may never happen in my lifetime, if I treat my blindness as neither mystical nor insurmountable, the closer we will get to that end. If you have any questions, or wish me to make you pretty beaded things (hopefully a web page will come soon), please feel free to message me on Twitter, email me, or ask a question in the comments. I love to hear from my readers.


If you like my words, my work, or if I make you question just a little bit about life, buy me a coffee, and spread the word!

  1. I am a guide dog puppy raiser and reading your posts and those of other guide dog users is immensely helpful to me! Your stories open up all kinds of issues that I see will help me lead my pup in the right directions. Thanks so much for your openness!!!

  6. Enjoyed meeting you and Jenny. I read your blog about your visit here to Wyoming Historic Governorsโ€™ Mansion. It was a pleasure walking from room to room sharing the history of the mansion and Wyoming. Come back any time.
