I am a full time substance abuse counselor and a casual writer with a passion for sharing my knowledge with others. My favorite topics to write about are health and personal finance. I especially love researching subjects that are new to me. I have been writing since 2010 and have published quite a few articles on various subjects. In my free time I enjoy reading, my two cats, the outdoors, horseback riding, volunteering for the United Way and Horizons for Homeless Children, and crafts. My favorite job ever: taking care of the police horses for the MDC Police. My worst job ever: picking squash on a farm one summer.
