Becky Sherrick Harks (Your Aunt Becky) is the dim-witted writer behind Mommy Wants Vodka and the founder of Mushroom Printing. Oh, and she also founded Band Back Together. But you probably guessed that much.
Her interests include encased meats, cherry lip gloss and single-stranded reverse-transcribing RNA viruses. She also likes shiny things and imagining a life married to men from television.
As a trauma survivor learning to live a normal(ish) life with Chronic Depression and PTSD, Crystal feels very strongly about the need to connect with others when experiencing difficulties. For this reason she has dedicated time to mentoring new mothers who are learning to breastfeed, sharing her parenting struggles and triumphs on her personal blog, Ewokmama.com, and involving herself in nearly all operations here at Band Back Together.
CathiC is a former biotech project manager who is now trying to keep up with the two forces of nature to whom she gave birth. She's been very blessed to have the support she needed during the darkest moments of her life and is paying that forward in part by her involvement with The Band. She works on The Band's Resource Pages, as well as editing posts. When she's not trying to organize her life with millions of sticky notes, she can be found chasing her children in every direction, writing, reading, or crafting. She firmly believes that salads ALWAYS test better when made by someone else.
Jennifer is the mother of two, wife of one, and in charge of none. She comes from a long line of mental illness, depression, and general craziness. Besides flinging glitter, her other talents include cooking, sounding like she knows what she's talking about, inappropriateness, and generally being awesome. For more of her special brand of awesome, you can visit her at her own corner of the internet at The Psychobabbles.
Her name is Teala, but just call her Mary Mary because she is quite contrary. Tell her not to do something,and chances are she'll do it. She is noisy yet quiet, chaotic yet organized.
Teala is a might-as-well-be-professional graduate student who can't wait to be out in the real world, which scares her.
As an optimist and perfectionist with pessimistic and procrastinating tendencies, she somehow got stuck within her very own "Fortress of Solitude" (read: comfort zone). But that has changed since coming into possession of some high quality WMDs, which she uses to nuke her comfy cube and blast herself into a new world. Teala chronicles her journey, ranging from her new adventures and struggles to her obsession with books and music and everything in between, at Earth to Teala and on Twitter.
TiaMaria is a single mom of a wonderful little man and a little angel girl lost at 20 weeks. As an aspiring writer and amateur photographer, she spends most of her days attached to her laptop. When not online, she is a bona fide groupie, following her long-time boyfriend's band around with her camera. She also enjoys crafting, reading, and movie nights at home.
She battles RA, IBS, and depression. Having suffered loss and stared darkness in the face, she's adamant about sharing her stories so that others will know they are not alone. She dreams of becoming a famous TV chef, owning horses, and a beach house on the Oregon Coast. She has as many as twenty different projects going at any given time and is unsure how she lived before her iPhone.
