About the Author

IMG_3600I was diagnosed with stage 2B invasive ductal carcinoma–breast cancer–at 33 years old, born into a family of which there was no history of the disease. Urban Chicken Wrangler explores my perspective as a young person with cancer, which comes with unique challenges in motherhood, my career, and relationships… and the humor necessary to navigate them. When I’m not writing, I’m conveying the importance of outerwear in Michigan to a six-year-old, taking walks with my one-eyed chiweenie, practicing yoga, and playing with my band. I rival Snow White with the number of animal friends I’ve made.
