About MB

(Formerly "Clip Clop Mama")

I began this as a "mommy blog" but because I'm more than a mom, it has turned into more than a "mommy blog"!  I now write about whatever issues are on my mind.
I hope to throw bloggy-dust into the universe that somebody will find interesting to read!

I work full-time in the healthcare field.  I have a Master's in Public Health and Social Work.  My experience includes volunteering with the Peace Corps in Togo, West Africa; working with the March of Dimes, Family Health International, and state and local health departments in Oklahoma and Virginia.

I have two amazing kids: a daughter born in 2008 and a son born in 2010.  I've been married to my husband since 2005.  We have had quite an adventure together!  We now live in Virginia and both work full time.  To add to our crazy lives, we have 2 dogs and are trying to figure out parenting, growth and community together.

My professional passion is ensuring healthcare quality and access for under-served populations - especially women, mothers, children and families.

In addition to my blog, you can find my writings, professional and personal, here:
