Hello! My name is Kim Rodrigues. I am over the moon for poetry! I love writing about my family, travel, life experiences, current events, and bible-related themes.  I have certificates in creative writing and poetry through online classes (Gale courses) and a certificate in Christian Ministry (INSTE 2 years). 

I have worked a variety of jobs.  I served for 8 years with the U.S. Navy and am currently a part-time Library Technician.
