My husband Jason and I moved to Dallas in 2000 from Austin. This is the farthest north I have ever lived. We have 2 awesome kids, a very cranky cat, and 4 fish. I worked in publishing before staying home with my children. When my youngest started school I wanted to go back to work. Friends encouraged me to accept a job as an assistant within the Special Education program in RISD. It was a very challenging, but watching the natural curiosity of the students and seeing the world through their perspective is very rewarding.
