I am a recovering redneck, proud Southerner, born and raised poor in rural Mississippi by a single mother who was a registered nurse. And yes, K really is my name. Having survived two abusive marriages, I am now married to a fantastic man who loves and supports me as I am – even if I irritate the Dickens out of him. He’s country-club and I’m just country!
Currently in Scottsdale, Arizona, I have decided that Arizona is now home. I have also lived in Mississippi, Virginia, Tennessee, Arkansas (short stint as a travel nurse), Texas, and California. I started my professional career as a mental health case worker for children in Mississippi and transitioned into being an RN – with a brief spate in technology in 2000 (but the tech market crashed, so I went to law school).
There is much more to me, which will be shared through this blog and perhaps a book. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. Just keep in mind – I am not giving out legal or medical advice. My views and opinions are solely my own, to the lament of many who love me.
