I'm so happy you're here.
Hello, friend. I'm Mandy. To answer your question, it is pronounced "Ant-toe-notch-ee." I am a lover of stories, long runs without sound, the New York Yankees, my puppy, Dante, the musky scent of a new book, teas that don't begin with chai, and every sunset I've ever met.
I am an eater of plants and a peddler of words—partial to the uplifting ones.
You probably landed here because you read something I wrote. Or perhaps you heard me speak on the topic of optimism, resilience, or storytelling. Or maybe you discovered The Daily Uplift™ and wanted to learn about the gal behind the pen and puppy shenanigans.
Whatever the reason, I'm so grateful you made it.
