why the bottom of the ninth?

  • For as long as I can remember, I have always loved the game of baseball. Like life, it is a game that is measured in small moments, a single pitch, a missed sign, a sacrifice fly to right in the bottom of the ninth to score the winning run. Moments when things change, sometimes forever. The bottom of the ninth is about those moments.

One-Line Bio

I am a social worker, teacher and writer but most importantly, a mother to two amazing young men.


I'm a social worker, teacher and wanderer.

I love sports, especially baseball, which is a lot like life.

I root for the underdog.

I'm the granddaughter of Italian immigrants, which means I'm passionate.... about almost everything.

I've worked in community based non-profit organizations my whole life... And I loved what I did.

That is, until I went through a mid life crisis of sorts.

So I stopped doing what I was doing and started to teach. And now I love my work again.

But my most important job is being a mom to my two amazing young men.

And I write...


family, sports (especially baseball), cooking, entertaining, travel, reading, writing and all things Italian, especially cannolis.
