I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.

Background Information

I was born in northern Ohio, grew up in Miami, Florida, and now live on the "Space Coast" near Cape Canaveral, where shuttle launches visible from my front yard set the stage for Alpha Rising.

Fascinated by space exploration and discoveries since childhood, my wildest dream would be to experience zero gravity at NASA's Space Camp. On the earthly plane, I love learning from children, caring for animals, appreciating nature, cooking, artistic pursuits and frivolous fun.

The proud mother of one grown son and one grandchild, my strong faith carries over in witness to God's miracles. At one point in my life I was given two weeks to live during treatment of a softball-sized cancerous tumor on my pericardium (the protective sac around the heart). I consider that difficult year a gift.

My hope for the future is that many medical conditions will be successfully treated and cured in space station laboratories.
