DISCLAIMER: I write what I feel when I feel it.  That’s one of the wonderful things about blogging.  But as a reader of these thoughts, you should know that the opinions expressed on my website are mine and not those of my employer or other organizations I’m affiliated with.  I would also like to add that while these blogs are not peer-reviewed writing or even final final drafts, they do represent my thoughts at the time that I express them.  And where do these thoughts, opinions, and ideas come from you ask? My personal and professional experiences, this includes my role as an SLP, my time as a student, my life as a host and actress, my identity as an African American female, my identity as an African American female married to a White man from a very different world than myself living in the South, my role as a researcher, a professor, an educator, my travel to 6 continents, my homes while living in 6 states.  As with anything, these thoughts and ideas are subject to change, because well, I learn more, I meet more people, I question myself more, etc…if/when they do, I will do my best to let you know.
