My professional background is a collective one. My first career was in the medical field working with the elderly. I specialized in those with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. I studied the legal structure, and graduated a Paralegal. I studied early childhood education and am a former preschool teacher and childcare provider. Most recently, I was a coordinator of after school programing for elementary aged students, their parents, and the staff of an elementary school. I have spent many years working with parents and children in volunteer organizations, and am an author of poetry and nonfiction. Thanks for your interest. To know more about the person I am…please read on.

“I am I am not”

I am a wife and mother of three.
I am a “hockey mom,” a daughter and sibling to six.
I am a dreamer, a survivor and friend.
I am a listener, a thinker and optimist.
I am outgoing and honest.
I am sensitive, emotional, and at times, a bitch.
I am persistent, a volunteer and a child advocate.
I am creative, musical, and a writer.
I am full of flaws.
I am unique, just like you.

I am not boring, perfect or a snob.
I am not petty, or afraid to try new things.
I am not always right.
I am not always strong.
I am never ashamed of failing, only of not trying.
I am not a traitor.
I am not interested in jumping on a “band wagon.”
