In the 1990s, I swore I swore off stockings as a result of my employer’s dress code that required women to wear stockings, pantyhose, tights, etc. if wearing a skirt.

I would surely be the person who has an adverse, disfiguring reaction to any anti-aging procedure, landing me on Dr. Nassif and Dr. DuBrow’s surgical […]
Publishing SheSpark’s October #FightLikeAGirl issue was by far the most emotional issue for me. A tissue box found permanent residency next to my computer. There were tears of sadness as readers, contributors, friends and family members detailed their fight and hardships related to breast cancer– and uterine and ovarian cancer. There were tears of joy […]
