About Me

Hello, I'm Megan Amrich!

I’ve been writing and editing professionally for more than 10 years now, working in academia, corporate communications and journalism.

In 2018, however, I shifted gears and started staying at home full-time with my young son, JB, due to his complex medical needs. (JB has a neurodevelopmental genetic syndrome.)

I continued my freelance writing (check out my work here!) but wanted another outlet to share my story as I adapted to life as a mother of a child with disabilities. Soon my blog Joyful, Brave & Awesome was born!
