GHF Dialogue – Managing Editor
Nikki Hegstrom had worked in web development for nearly twenty years when she decided to finally go back to school to finish her degree. Her prerequisites were geared towards psychology and neurobiology, but she realized it was time to pursue her love of words and language as a writer and editor. Nikki came to GHF during a frantic search for resources after deciding to homeschool her 2e son. And, in typical fashion, it was her son that led to her own late-in-life diagnosis of being 2e/ADHD. She’s now working on a collection of essays about the experience.
