Me?

I love words. I cuddle with them. I like them. A lot. (Which is always two words, and never one.)



I’ve been a copywriter since graduating from Stanford in 1988.  But that’s not who I am.



I have one child, a son, which means I am a mother while also being a wife.  But that is not who I am.



When Hans was just 13-months old and I was only 33, I found a strange pea-sized lump under my left armpit that changed everything. That was 15 years ago now. I'm not a huge fan of the word “survivor,” because that is not who I am.

I mean, I am surviving. I just don’t like the label.



I drive an old German convertible sportscar, because life is short.

I live in Marin County, California. While being a spectacularly beautiful place, Marin is also the breast cancer capital of America. So I've learned to take the bad with the good.​

Ask me any day. Life is good.

This is my margarita."
