As we come to the end of one season and begin another, I take this moment to share my decision to take next steps in my career and transition out of Tell Them. The past three years I’ve experienced with the organization have been remarkable.

We all get it. It happens. And it’s really hard to push through.
That’s what happened to me this week. Yesterday, I came to work cranky, and may have taken some of it out on colleagues that didn't deserve my tone (I apologize if that happened – I didn't mean it to). And to make matters worse, I had a long day ahead of me, including a drive to Greenville.
That is not how the day ended. And I have 5 incredible women to thank for it.

Women’s reproductive health is a hot-button issue. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines the female reproductive system as: “a delicate and complex system in the body” that needs protection in order to control your overall health. No matter what a person’s beliefs are concerning sex, it’s a fact that reproductive maintenance is just one aspect of taking care of yourself. There are perhaps just as many misconceptions about women’s reproductive health as there are arguments against freedom of care. Know the facts so you’re better informed and able to participate in voting for laws that protect women’s health.

This past Saturday I had the opportunity to explore "Soda City". There were lots of vendors and Tell Them was there to manage a tent for voter registration.

I get it. You're tired of hearing me brag about how awesome Tell Them advocates are - how awesome you are.

Today is a day like no other. Today, the University of South Carolina Gamecocks play their first game of the season.

One of the things I love about working for a nonprofit is the opportunity to support our friends and colleagues in making Columbia a healthier place. That's why I'm participating in the American Red Cross blood drive.

I was "shamed" for getting an HIV test. The scariest part of this statement is that I was shamed by my own doctor.

Dear South Carolina Law Maker,
I am writing to let you know how important it is for South Carolina women of all ages have access to all forms of birth control. At 17 years of age, I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder called Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura, or ITP for short. It is best described as a mimic of leukemia. The cause was a malfunctioning spleen that liked to “eat” my platelets, making me susceptible to spontaneous, and possibly unstoppable, bleeding.

My Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds were filled last night - all on the same topic: the death of Robin Williams. It seems my generation has taken to social media in this time of shock and grief. I offer another outlet...
