About Me

I grew up in a small town in the Mohawk Valley at the base of the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York. Please notice I said grew up; this has nothing to do with the maturation process.  I graduated from Utica College of Syracuse University with a bachelor of science in public relations/journalism. Like most idealistic college graduates, I set out to change the world. Like most others, I failed.

I ventured into a sales career which took me around the world. Muscular dystrophy cut my career short and I left the workplace at the tender age of 50. Although disappointed and disabled, this change afforded me the opportunity to intensify my volunteer child advocacy work. I didn't change the world but I'm proud to say, because of this passion, I did help many children and families. For years my family and friends encouraged me to write professionally. Little did they know I would pursue it as my second career.
