Image: I have long, blonde hair and green eyes. I am 5'6, and have mild cerebral palsy due to a right-side hemiplegia, so I walk with a slight limp. My left arm is shorter than my right and I only use my left hand to assist.

I am a professor of writing at Belmont University and a freelance writer and editor. My emphasis in the English department is disability studies, so my students participate in interviews and service-learning activities to learn about disability rights issues. My most recent freelance projects include research for the Statewide Independent Living Council of Tennessee, editing a memoir by Dianne Liuzzi Hagan called To the Mothers of the Movement, With Love, and blogging work for various agencies.
