I had a colostomy for four months after my colon burst during pregnancy, a rare complication of endometriosis on the large intestine. I’m a recovering TV news reporter in Orlando, Florida who's now kickin' butt in the world of freelance. I love fresh air and candy, write for POPSUGAR, and I'm learning how to be a mom to Dean—an always-on-the-move baby boy.

Fun fact: I have a serious fear of belly buttons, which made wearing a colostomy bag interesting. I hate it when people touch my own naval and don’t like looking at or touching others. They totally weird me out!
