Hello! My name is Amberr Meadows. I became a professional writer in January, 2010, but it's been my dream to write for more than 20 years. I enjoy writing about weight loss, books and authors, Georgia travel, moms issues and schizophrenia. I have a B.A. in Psychology from Oglethorpe University in Atlanta. I became fascinated with schizophrenia in my first abnormal psychology course at Oglethorpe University several years ago, and it's now a kind of a passion of mine to learn more about it and share my findings with others. I feel that individuals with schizophrenia are often grossly misunderstood, and it is my goal to help erase the stigma associated with being schizophrenic through my work.In my free time I enjoy reading, writing, kayaking, dancing and taking mini-vacations with my family. Prior to becoming a writer, I worked as a mortgage loan officer at a large banking institution. Information on my work can be found here: Amberr Meadows, Amberr-ivyam.blogspot.com, and My Suite.
