Natassia Williamson
Hello, My name is Natassia. I am a Nurse Practitioner by day and mom always. Balancing life with 3 kids, a husband, and the dog. Twin mom of daughters and their older brother leading the way. I have a tremendous love for writing and passion for story telling. I decided to start a mom blog in 2020 to share my experiences navigating motherhood with a special needs child. 2020 was also the year I published my first children's book ABC D is Ability. Created to explore children's abilities despite their disabilities. I served four years as an Army Nurse and became Family Nurse Practitioner in 2014.
