I’ve always been a sporty bookworm. In high school, I was valedictorian and captain of the softball team. I made my way through college (gaining a few pounds along the way thanks to a more sedentary lifestyle) and into the working world with more book knowledge but not quite knowing how to transition from tomboy to successful career woman.
A few years later, and here I am, with a great job, a husband, a kid … and I still find myself stuck in very tomboyish ways. I started this blog just before my 30th birthday as a way to explore through writing my attempts to reconcile that tomboy teenager and this successful professional, writer, wife and mother.
