About Me

I am a below knee amputee. More importantly, I am also Mommy to two boys, a very active 10 year old (Robby) and an mischievous toddler (Timmy). I have learned that being a parent with a disability can create some unusual and sometimes humorous situations. This blogger is available for hire! Let's talk and learn how a blog can expand your business.

In January 2017 my podcast partner and friend Dave and I launched our new website. Launching a site made sense as our podcast has grown in subscribers and the depth of information that we cover. We needed a clearinghouse to hold all of our show notes and the materials which we produced to supplement our discussions.

Over the past 16 months we have continued to update our website and develop new tools. This fall it became clear that we were quickly outgrowing our current website format. Our "do-it-yourself" site was functional when we began the venture, but we found ourselves stymied by the platform. Wanting to grow but having limited knowledge when it comes to coding and web design, we felt like Amp'd was in a holding pattern.

Every once in awhile something happens that changes everything. Dave and I received an email from a dear friend and follower, asking us to speak with her son. It turns out that her son owns a media marketing agency, and he was interested in helping to develop and take Amp'd to the next level. Dave and I were gobsmacked when he offered us a completely new logo and website to launch Amp'd from a podcast to a resource for the entire limb loss/ limb difference community.

Orijin Media was wonderful to work with, and I highly recommend them if you are in need of a new website or digital marketing. From start to finish the designers thoughtfully researched and worked to implement features that were intuitive and functional for our community. After a lot of work and collaboration, our new website is now live.

I am so proud to bring this new resource to the community. Amp'd has been a passion project for both Dave and myself, and it is amazing watching it take on wings of its own. Please visit www.ampdlife.org.  You may want to bookmark the site because we will update often.
