Rebekah Kuschmider is a mom with an over-developed sense of irreverence, a cable news addiction, a blog and a stubborn affection for working in the non-profit sector. She blames her parents who told her to go forth and do good in the world instead of telling her to be a glamorous socialite with scads of money and expensive shoes.  This summer, she abruptly decided to try staying at home which is even less lucrative than the non-profit sector.

Rebekah holds and undergraduate degree in theatre (which is more useful than you think) and Master’s in Arts Policy and Administration (which is less useful than you think) and a decade of experience managing arts organizations and advocating in the public health sector. She arrived in the DC area in 1996, left in 2000, and returned in 2003, which by her math, means she's lived in either Northern VA, DC, or Montgomery County for 13 years and has spent far too much time in the different DMVs changing her automobile registration to stay current.

Rebekah also blogs about her life, her thoughts, and her opinions at Mom-In-A-Million.com.
