About Fluency’s Folly


This blog is written and maintained by me, Annabelle Winters:left on BoylstonI work as  the Behavioral Services Director and Philanthropy Associate (and race director!) for a non-profit agency in Chicago that provides all manner of supports for adults with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities.


I like to run. I’m self-coached, love social media, and when I’m not running or working, I’m usually reading, or searching for the next Whiskey to try.

I live in Chicago with my fiancé, Jorge, and our two beloved Shi-Tzu’s, Lucinda and Penelope.


I chase Unicorns. I wear my passions and my values on my sleeve. I expect tolerance, compassion, kindness, and the pursuit of excellence from all people.
