Squeezed right out of the middle class, NouveauPoor is a former patent attorney in the throes of long-term unemployment. Disenfranchised by a corporate system that values sucking up and nepotism over true talent, she is currently writing and trying her hand at stand-up comedy, all while seemingly futilely sending out an average of 2.1 resumes a day. Yay economy.
After 7 1/2 yrs living in sunny, fabulous Las Vegas, she and her 3 3/4 yo daughter MiniPoor are currently couch surfing with family in her home state of Michigan and trying to figure out how to get back to the desert. NP is eternally grateful to RonnieK, TrashTalkTV, and readers like you for the chance to branch out and make the world a happier place.
