    Hi and happy to be here. I always feel weird introducing myself in a forum . . . there are so many layers to me–maybe I’m really an onion! LOL

    I am a retired pediatrician–25 years in practice but left it over 10 years ago. I love writing and helping others learn to love it, too. I create DFY content at coachreadycontent.com and content marketing/content strategies at shesgotcontent.com.

    I grew up in Ohio and went to medical school there. Residency in NJ and that’s where I’ve lived since 1981. I have 3 grown daughters and 6 grandkids and they all live within 15-20 minutes of me. My parents still live independently on the farm in Ohio and I don’t get to visit often enough.

    I raise Eastern Swallowtail butterflies in the summertime here in NJ. Over the past winter of 2020-2021, I fostered 50 butterfly chrysalises through the winter. Fingers crossed for them all to emerge healthy in May or June 2021.

    I love to travel and dream of holding retreats in exotic and beautiful locations. Want to join me for adventures as soon as the coast is clear?

    Hey Melissa,

    Thanks for connecting. I thought I’d pop over to your intro to see a little bit more about you. It would have been rude not to, right?

    I love the onion analogy and totally relate. I have been through a number of transformations myself. It’s always a struggle to know which ME is going to turn up to the party.

    Looking forward to the journey!

    Julia <3

    Thanks for connection, Julia! My sister’s name is Julia also, but she’s been known as Julie throughout most of her life!

    Looking forward to getting to know you better here in the forum!
