One SMALL Step Richmond has already raised $11,450 toward our goal of $30,000 for PWS research!! We are #27 in the world among 72 walks. Help us toward our goal! And if you register to walk with us on the 26th, all you have to do is raise $40 and you get an awesome OSS T-shirt. It will be a great family event! Thank you to all those who have supported us thus far! http://onesmallstep.fpwr.org/dw/users/deanmachine/Richmond2013
I live in Richmond, VA with my husband Bobby, a Presbyterian minister, and our three sons: Cole (6), Dean (4), and Emmett (2.5). Dean was diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) at 3 weeks old and this blog is mostly about life with a child with PWS.
Currently, I work from home as a freelance editor and writer and take care of the boys. I am also a Team Beachbody Independent Coach (www.beachbodycoach.com/alishenk). Occasionally, I sleep at night.
I have an M.A. in Counseling (Marriage & Family Therapy concentration) and a B.A. in Early Childhood Education and Human Development, neither of which drive my current work, but both inform my daily life.
