Welcome to the first blog post of Pivot & Transcend!

I intend to use this space to post weekly thoughts on the general themes of family life (the joys and difficulties for families of all sizes and configurations), the challenges of various kinds of relationships, and self-development in a fairly broad sense. I do a lot of reading and plan to mix in topical book reviews periodically as well.

I am a lawyer-turned-mediator with a degree in sociology, interested in contributing to the health and well-being of families. I have spent the last several years lawyering, reading, travelling, learning about what drives us as human beings, and how to implement creative solutions in many facets of life. I'm also a happy wife and relatively zen parent of two teenage boys.

I'd love it if you'd follow along on my continued journey.
