Network as well as running my own family-and-food blog, Red, Round or Green, and contributing to the food advocacy site HandPicked Nation. In 2013 I was honored to have one of my personal essays, on the challenges of raising a child with mild special needs, featured in the "Listen to Your Mother" national reading series.

When I made the shift into the corporate world, I...
