I'm a Sacramento-based domestic violence advocate, newspaper columnist, author and blogger. I cover politics and women’s issues at my blog Lady Troubles, and my writing has been featured on The Good Men Project, the Huffington Post and the Ms. Magazine Blog. In addition to my advocacy work, I have experience in communications, teaching and journalism. In my free time I like to hike, kayak and make jam, a pre-feminist hobby if ever there was one. But come the apocalypse, I will have marmalade.
