Who am I?

Oh hai..When the caterpillar asks, “Who Are You?”, I’d reply, “I am tragic, unusual, and alive. I embrace life as a wonderland of nonsense, in which I can be a lost boy or a wild thing.”

At work, I am an Urban Anthropologist. Sorry, my career has nothing to do with bones, CSI, pottery, or dinosaurs. I am an Admission & Intakes Manager for people with Intellectual Disabilities! I love meeting with families, hearing their stories, and finding how to support their service needs.

My career philosophy...I heavily BELIEVE in Macy’s Santa, i.e why say no?! Just put the individual first and try to provide support-even if it’s not us there are so many people and places in the world; keep hope alive..

(How is this relevant to the swapping world? Well, I love funky post-its, day planner stickers, agenda coding-type items) At home, within my wonderland, besides mom-crying over the emotional joy of staring at my newborn girl, I enjoy promoting my husband and I recently became temporary respite foster parents to a variety of ages. Our organization focuses on re-building the family, supporting community, and growing stronger by learning from each other. We love hearing from fellow fosters because experience, history, and advice comes from the most unique places.

How is this relevant to the swapping world? Let’s mom connect! whether it’s love, advice, inspiration, strength… we also could use stuff for daily projects; stickers, sensory-based items, black-out poetry, board game ideas, fidgets..swap it my way!

I also enjoy discovering treasures at thrift stores, finding a good tree to climb while hiking, playing volleyball, designing themed board game nights, and in between all of that reading non-stop.

PLEASE NOTE: I have been swapping on Swap-bot for 10+years. I have never flaked..honestly, I have never sent something that I haven’t catered to be profile specific- I have had life happen (illness, emergencies w.kids, issues at work) and I also live near the WORST post office ever-with the rudest slowest workers. This may cause delays, but I will reach out to update. That said, this site has honestly become very petty at times. Please remember we all do this for fun, we pick items we pay for our of our own pockets & we spend way too much on postage most days! Be open minded. Be kind. Be understanding.

Favorite Books

Books are my obsession. Books, book clubs, book blogs, goodreads (montigneyrules), sitting in libraries, etc.

I dream of bookshelves wonderfully organized.

i can list what i love to read forever & forever....

How does one even truly pick ‘favorite books’, ‘favorite genre’, ‘favorite author’? It is all so complex to breakdown…my attempt:

If I’m stranded on an island, I’d read forever over and over:

Haunted (chuck palahniuk), History of Love (nicole krauss), Starless Sea (erin morgernstern), Where the Wild Things Are (expanded edt. david eggers) & Alice in Wonderland

The books I recommend to people the most (not previously listed above):

Incarnations (susan barker), Brief History of the Dead (kevin brockmeier), Fever (laurie anderson), Reincarnation Blues (michael poole), & Forty Rooms (olga grushin)

Hearts, Stars, and Horsehoes

Other Things I Rather Enjoy:



-Blackout poetry

-Vintage postcards of people, where you guess what the true story scene is

-Pin-up girls

-Favorite color is purple

-List-based stationary


-Cooking; anything recipe related

-Washi Tape

Favorite Music

Skinny Lister. Greatest Showman Soundtrack. Of Monsters and Men. Will Varley. Flogging Molly. Flobots. Skrillex. Big D and the Kid's Table. Bad Religion, B.O.B. Chase Hoelfelder.

Favorite Television

I love watching Survivor (I've seen every season, I'm beyond obsessed).

Bobs Burgers is a close second obsession.

Psych, Are You Being Served? Grey's Anatomy, The Office, Dead Like Me, Parks and Rec., Meerkat Manor, Avatar the Last Airbender

recently, I've marathoned Dr. Who. Now I can finally commit to the awesome fandom!

My Maybe Not List

If you can please keep in mind:

I don't like ATCs

-No hats/scarves

-I absolutely hate dolphins

-I'm beyond terrified of birds

-I'm not a huge fan of animal print

-I don't eat peanut butter

-I think butterflies are ugly

-Christmas colors outside of December irk me

I am sorry that you don't like ATCs, it is good to know it will find a new home and not in the trashcan. I ran training programs for FC workers, Foster Parents, and Children's Welfare for years. I commend you on your household and your family.

Enjoy the love and foster warmth!
