…a neurodiversity advocate, a public speaker, a conference organizer, and an IASAS board executive. I’m also a published poet and essayist. I host a podcast called Weird Sister, and I’m writing a memoir about my very strange brain. I have ADHD, Tourette Syndrome, and many forms of synaesthesia, a trait that confers blended senses. I am a Licensed Massage Therapist with an almost three decade career in hands on healing. I work in a small quiet office with just one person at a time, the perfect career for neurodivergent me. I am a visual artist, and a costume designer, and I love to wear things on my head, which helps me with sensory processing. I’m a word nerd, and a sentimental dork, and I know that dogs are often wiser and kinder than people. My motto is “brains are strange and they aren’t all the same”.

You were all this in High School- never thought of you as abnormal. You’ve always been super sweet, driven, beautiful, taking a road less traveled. In reading your bio – you also appear very happy. Your as beautiful & eccentric as ever CC Hart…
I think the best part of my high school years were all of the Northwood Drive kids, including you and your siblings. It’s been a tough road in some ways, and I think I put much effort into masking my struggles, but we all know how it goes; hiding from the truth always catch up with us. I’m so happy social media has helped us reconnect, Deborah Starr, and I am excited to see where you will find your new home!
