Way back when in 1988, my creative writing professor had us write a personal story and mine evolved as "the orange purse." For all these years, I've been carrying my story with me, and now it is finally time to share. As I age, the story emerges with varying layers... I hope that through my story, insights, and personal happenings, a sense of kinship emerges.
May your find balance and a sense of well-being. May your "purse" be filled with reminders that truly help you to live lightly.

I hold a Doctor of Education degree specializing in Curriculum, Learning and Leadership.My research focused on developing pedagogy for trauma sensitive children and providing support for educators. I have a Master of Science degree in Education specializing in Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment, a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology, and Teacher Certification in Early Childhood Education.
I have more than thirty years working in early childhood and elementary education ranging from a classroom teacher to manager of school-age care programs, and private consultant.
I am married for almost thirty years to a dedicated, hard-working, nature-loving former special operations soldier and now successful businessman. I am mother to a driven, intuitive daughter who blazes her own trails and gently reminds me to "walk softly." I am mother to the most sensitive, loving German short-haired pointer ever.... he lifts up my soul.
