I am in process of moving. If timeline is not sequential or if skills and education appear incomplete- I plan to update and correct, with more clarity, when I have more than an iPhone to work with. I continually attend conferences and complete continuing education in fields of Integrative Medicine, Medicine,, Pharmacology, and areas in Education and Curriculum. Personally I am interested in Shamanism, sacred plants and Indigenous Cultures, Healthcare Deluvery, and Alternative School options in our area. I am a member of UUSO Congregation and various study groups. I adore travelling, especially in Spanish Speaking regions. Irish music and poetry are a passion. Reading and theatre have delighted my life, and I love to write. Communication is a long time fascination. Storytelling is an area that delights me.

My most significant accomplishment is being mother of four wonderful, well educated adult children and a stepson. My professions have been in caregiving and mostly other cantered. Driven, focused, creative,,resilient are words to describe me. Working is extremely important for me.
