I am a 21-year-old nerd girl from the Detroit, MI area, getting started on my MSW and just entering the field of psychology and social work. I currently do in-home therapy for children with autism, but my most important job is being a good sister to my much-younger brother (who is also on the autism spectrum). My boyfriend and I recently started living together, and we are enjoying (seriously, it’s a lot of fun) our new life together. I am a gamer, an autism advocate, a Harry Potter fanatic, a person living with a mental illness, and a big kid at heart. I’ve learned to enjoy every minute of my ridiculous life, and I enjoy sharing it with others just as much. Spine is a nickname I acquired for having a freakishly bony back and, as such, very few people use my given name.
