Hello and welcome to our blog. My name is Theresa, a single mom to an adorable, rambunctious, and adventurous toddler. Together, we form the dynamic mom and son duo of Sugarfoot and Ry. During the day, I daydream about far off places and salivate over photos of distant lands. However, practical me maintains a full time job as a licensed mental health professional in the Los Angeles area. Ry, on the other hand spends his days at preschool learning his ABC’s and 123’s, amusing his schoolteachers, and just being a silly little kid. During our free time we explore family-friendly sites and unique fun spots in awesome and vibrant sunny SoCal, as well as other parts of the lovely golden state, and elsewhere in the good ol’ U.S. of A.
Before I actually had Ry, I traveled a bit both domestically and abroad and acquired plenty of fond memories along the way, many of which were acquired from my solo ventures. Without a doubt I inherited the wanderlust/adventure gene, and it would appear as though that Ry did too.
In case it wasn’t obvious, Sugarfoot is me, Theresa, and my tot is Ry. I was given the nickname by an endearing psychiatric patient of mine, whom, without fail would often profess to me, “I love ya, Sugarfoot!” 🙂
Academically and professionally, I have a B.A. from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and a Master’s degree from the University of Southern California (USC). Am I an L.A. girl or what? Prior to my current employment in the field of mental health, I rocked it in event planning/coordination in the marketing and media relations sector.
