Background Information

Mix Northern roots with Southern rearing and a Midwestern university experience, toss in a dash of a religious and family background that emphasizes community service and you get...me!

From a book on psychotropic pharmaceuticals to articles on artists, writers, money, kids and health and essays on my hometown and family, I have had the opportunity to meet many interesting people and tell their stories.

I have written complete business manuals, marketing materials and letters that resulted in putting one business in the black only nine months after it opened. 

In my former career, I was instrumental in obtaining two different JCAHO accreditations as well as the first CARF accreditation of a specialized vocational rehabilitation facility for addictions and mental illness. 

I have also presented many courses on mental and physical health and social issues and spoken at  seminars in several states.

 I am proud to work with Consumers Union on issues that affect consumers, including food safety, healthcare and finances.  I am one of 80 people nationwide chosen to particpate in the 2008 Consumers Union Summit. I also volunteer at a regional theater and a local senior center. 

I am an avid walker, cross-country skier, dancer and duplicate bridge player.  You'll also find me working with kids, especially my three adorable grandsons, who devour anything I can find related to chemistry and physics. 

An avid reader, I love mysteries, selected biographies and the history of language and religion. I also enjoy cooking vegetarian cuisine and old-fashioned Jewish food.

Watch closely and you might catch me doing some needlework from time to time.

I have even designed and built three homes, doing much of the work with my family on one of them. 

This eclectic background makes me who I am today--a woman who enjoys the world and all it has to offer, as well as a well-rounded author.
