I am completing my memoir, -How I Got Married After Fifty for the First Time. My essays, news, and opinion pieces have appeared in publications including The Washington Post, The LA Times, AARP's The Girlfriend, AARP's The Ethel, The Boston Globe, Lunch Ticket, Gathering-A Women Who Submit Anthology, Hippocampus, Orange Coast Magazine, LA Weekly, and Los Angeles Magazine. In addition, I teach writing classes for people of all levels of experience.
My journalism career started with the Burbank Leader, (an LA Times Community Newspaper), when they hired me to cover airport and city news, and behind-the-scenes stories of people working in the entertainment business.
In 2023, I received generous financial support for my work as a writer and teacher from the Maryland State Arts Council, The Montgomery County Government and the Arts & Humanities Council of Montgomery County.
Other past gigs include communication professor, farmers market coordinator, census taker, dance company manager, and antique dealer. I starred in the production of my solo play, Finding the Perfect Place to Live in 111 Gyrations, at Plan B Performing Arts, Santa Fe, N.M.
I earned a BA in Cultural Studies (writing, dance, film) from SUNY Purchase College, and an MA in Writing/Theater/Communication from George Mason University. After 25 years of practicing yoga, I completed my certification to teach in 2020.
Finally, I am an unapologetic feline aficionado, and at age 53, I added wife and stepmom to my credentials.
