The luckiest among us are those whose avocations and vocations overlap. I am one of the fortunate few who have woven both into a profession, and now it is my job to tell stories. On the page for magazines, on the stage for wide-eyed people who begin to see the insidious signs of coercive control/abuse/domestic violence (it's a continuum), and on stages like this where she is not paid in lucre but in human connection. Yes, I did just write that. Dorky as it seems.
