My name is Jesse. I’ve lived in the Midwest my entire life and am currently situated in Michigan with my husband of six years and our daughter.
I’ve struggled with this blog for a while now because I simply wasn’t sure what I wanted to write about. But I realized I don’t need to necessarily pigeonhole the blog – I will write about whatever I please! This could be food (it will most likely be food because… hello, food!), current issues that I’m interested in, parenting, music, the paranormal or books I love.
I’ve been getting more into reading lately and recently discovered that we have a really great library in our city. I’ve never really been a person who likes to read fiction books and I can’t actually remember the last fiction book I read all the way through. I’m usually reading a biography of someone I admire or something related to psychology or social issues. I’m working on finishing a book now and plan to write a review of it shortly.
I earned a Bachelor’s degree in psychology and have been working in the mental health field for the past six years. I’m passionate about ending stigma and increasing access to health care and treatment options. I may occasionally comment on proposed legislation or changes in the field that would directly affect my job and the people that my employer serves.
That’s a little bit about me. I hope to write more soon and get to know you as well! If you read all of this, leave a comment with your favorite television show!
