I’m Ranea, and I live in Wisconsin with my three children, husband & dog.
I found my belief in the importance of pretend play through two paths. First, during my childrens’ formative years, I developed an appreciation for crafting, games and dress-up as I saw my kids confidence grow as they succeeded on their imaginary adventures. Plus, before having my third child, I worked as Speech Language Pathologist for the Minneapolis Public School System specializing in autism and augmentative communication. While working with kids with special needs pretend play often provided solutions, albeit, unconventional, that met the sensory and communication needs of my students.
Now that my kids are older, my favorite past time is reorganizing and redecorating our family home and in my free time, I enjoy personal reflection and faith building activities.
