She was born in New Vienna, Ohio, grew up in Cleveland, completed high school in Santa Barbara, California and graduated from college in Portland, Oregon where she lived for over forty years. Her government career included service on the city, county and state level in diverse areas from law enforcement and purchasing to claims adjusting and social services.
Maui mornings and desert sun fuel her creativity. She lives her dreams in Arizona and Hawaii and would love to hear from lost friends from college student days in Mexico City. Remember the Toluca Rocket?
