About

Rebecca on Joy & Sorrow

Rebecca, raiser of two complicated and amazing tiny humans facing very real challenges, thinker of deep thoughts, weaver of words from experience to page. It is all so much more than it seems; it has to be. And, we are all so much more alike than we are different. That’s what she writes about; from mundane to monumental.

Very practically, Rebecca is a special education advocate.  Lover of the mind and its workings in her former life she was a clinical neuroscience research assistant; also lover of statistics she spent a stint as a systems and performance analyst.  Fundamentally, she is a lover and defender of children, and that is a very good thing; because, she has two who need her very much.

She dedicates what time she can to raising awareness and funds to find a cure for the rare genetic disorder with which her daughter was born, Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC).  You can learn more about TSC here.
