I’m a mother of four – three boys ages 7, 4, and 3 months, and a special little girl who is 18 months old. They keep me busy, but I love being a mom. Our little girl spent almost four months in the NICU and has had four trips to the operating room and several rides in ambulances, but we are confident that all of that is behind us. All of that time in the hospital and the challenges that we face with her have made me that much more committed to a healthy lifestyle, though the stress of the situation can make it difficult.

Eating healthy and exercising are big points in our house, though my five year old is a picky eater to say the least. We love to move together. I have a Bachelor’s Degree from UNC Asheville in Women’s Health, and will graduate Master’s in Teaching this coming May.

For the past thirteen years my husband and I have been vegan. It’s a great choice and driven by compassion.

I’m a graduate student, homeschooling mom and I do bits of online work to fill things out. Life is busy but very rewarding!

    Hi, Autumn,

    Just wanted you to know that you, Scot, Yeats, Jude, & HERMIONE continue in our thoughts and prayers. Hermione is and will be fine. Remember that all of the drastic doom-and-gloom things (suggestions, recommendations, “you have to” stuff, etc.) were only ever mentioned and stressed AFTER they added a diagnosis to her name and/or only after a nurse/doctor was told about the diagnosis. Add a label, and it changes people’s expectations. There have been sooooo many others who (for whatever reason) have been told that they will never be able to do _______ after something happened, and the person so “labeled” (or their family) said, “You are WRONG !” and worked to prove them wrong. Hermione has you and Scot, brothers, family, and friends to help prove the “doom-n-gloom” people wrong.

    Also wanted you to know that whenever we watch a Harry Potter movie and someone mentions Hermione, I automatically think of Hermione Rose. She’s a strong little girl. She’s had a rough start, but she WILL catch up with things and be fine — just like her brothers and the rest of the family. Take care. We love y’all. 🙂
