I have a PhD and have worked in industry as Director of Marketing for a national retail jewelry chain. In addition, I have also taught Marketing at the University level. Now retired, I enjoy serving on the Board of a Symphony Orchestra in the Lowcountry. I enjoy sailing on my sailboat, reading, using my special gifts for writing, making my friends and colleagues laugh, dining out, going to movies/plays/musical s, and traveling. I am passionate about many things, especially people. I believe that life should be a joyful experience that is best shared and experienced with someone special.
