Writer's Workshop: My Life As I Know It

After working in Publishing for 9 years, Andrea decided that it was time to move on and start doing something more for PEOPLE than for, well, more WITH people than sitting in front of a computer. Or so she thought. Do you know how much paperwork is involved in social work? Working as a child and family therapist she found herself on the floor playing with young children daily, while trying to convince their parents that this was, indeed, therapeutic work! After nearly 3 years in the field, Andrea and her husband relocated from Brooklyn, NY to Raleigh-Durham, NC. While searching for work in family therapy, she learned that she'd be starting her very own family shortly! So as not to come and go in her future clients' lives, she decided to hold off on working until after the baby arrived. And now she is a SAHM to a 3-year-old bundle of energy who keeps her on her toes daily! She did obtain her social work license in NC, and is working hard at getting the required 40 CEUs to renew it next month. As it is important to her to be able to maintain that license and head back into the field at some point, to help children and families in need.

**And there you have it. Life before you knew me. And life as you know it for me now. I hope you'll turn the page and come on in to learn the details. And I look forward to sharing the coming days with you, as well!
