Hello! I’m Justine Uhlenbrock, an epidemiologist by trade and a storyteller by hobby. I am also a strategist, birth doula, and childbirth educator. I am a southerner transplanted to Boston, a renegade homemaker, and a mother who spends an alarming portion of my day giving simple directions to people who ignore them.
If motherhood was my second adolescence, then writing must be my third. I enjoy writing; reading, especially literary reflections; and listening to other people’s stories. I share my own process here, even when I feel vulnerable. For some reason I cannot recall now, I decided this is the year I will speak in public.
