about me and DTD

me&DTD

I am a freelance writer and a mom and a wife. In my former lives, I was a middle-school English teacher, an assistant preschool teacher, a paid English conversationalist and Chuck E. Cheese, among other things. 

I have been married to a doctor for over 25 years. DTD’s specialty is internal medicine, which comes in handy whenever I have aches and pains. He never hesitates to offer his expert opinion, whether or not I’m seeking it. Through the years, we have had some thoroughly enlightening and often annoying medically-oriented conversations during dinner. This has occurred during simple family dinners with our three children, as well as large dinner parties with family, friends, and acquaintances.

It seems that during the common and communal act of sharing a meal, people feel emboldened to ask a doctor ANYTHING. During my evening meal, I have been treated to discourses about the importance of fiber and the symptoms of STDs, among many other topics. Finally I decided these conversations, along with many of the delectable meals and bottles of wine, were meant to be shared with the masses, and dinnertabledoctor.com was born! I hope you enjoy having a little peak into our lives and our meals and our conversations with my resident doctor. If you would like to invite us to dinner sometime for an in-person consultation, let me know!
