Detroit-born, Pittsburg-raised, and educated in Los Angeles, with stints in Seattle and Madison, WI, I've lived all over the country. My profession and passion revolve around learning and education. For fun, I enjoy yoga, meditation, hiking, and various forms of outdoor exploring. I have an adult daughter who brings me great joy. I like antiquing, seeing live theater, and singing aloud (although I am admittedly tone-deaf).
