My name is Michelle Ida Fairchild. I am a writer and artist who at heart is a soulful and sensitive intuitive, a courageous creator, a resilient visionary, a self-esteem fluffer, a marvelous music mixer and one who offers up bridges of connections to my fellow travelers. I believe We Are All Meant to Shine!
I am happily married to a science educator, who taught middle school science for many years, before expanding into directing programs and coaching and training science teachers. We will celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary this year. I am also the adoring mama to identical twin daughters, who are very active 12-year-olds who play multiple sports and musical instruments, and they keep me dancing. I have been working in the field of higher education in Northern California for two years now. I previously worked in the non-profit foster-adoption world for over 12 years, as well as in outdoor education, the printing world, and retail while in college.
In a previous life I wrote a column called We Are All Meant to Shine! in Cosmic Cowgirl Magazine. I had also been writing my blog for quite a few years, before taking a break.
