Grace

For over a decade, Grace worked as a forensic interview specialist working with the FBI, Law Enforcement & Child Protection in the investigation of crimes involving children, she has been qualified as a child development expert and has taught internationally on child welfare issues. In 2014, she transitioned away from her career to pursue a more creative & joy-filled life.

Since then, she has written at The Big Reveal about her love of interior design, being a reformed cooking disaster, and parenting two completely rad children. Her interior design dabbling has been recognized by industry experts including Good Housekeeping, Domino Magazine, and Design*Sponge. She’s been called a “cool mom” by Good Housekeeping, “the wizard of DIYs” by House of Hipsters and “someone who loves coffee more than her children” … by her own children.

Grace enjoys challenging the delusion of balance, ranting about insincerity in social media, and being completely irreverent even when not entirely appropriate (especially when not entirely appropriate). Her daily challenges include managing her multiple chronic illnesses and her perpetual pursuit of finding something clean to wear. Grace is the Editor-In-Chief and owner of Do It Well, Co. You can find her elsewhere at @iamgraceray.
