I am a retired professional in the field of social services.  My career focused the empowerment of women and children. Toward that end, I have worked on hotlines, provided child assault prevention to school children, provided counseling for victims of abuse and have supervised staff and programs with a special interest in staff development and staff morale.  Since retiring, my priorities are my grandchildren and exploring spirituality in the second half of life.     

I love the following quote by Ram Dass, "We are all just walking each other home". As a Spiritual Director, I am honored and humbled to walk with someone on their spiritual path and see the process as facilitating one's journey back to self.  My areas of special interest are spirituality, women's issues, burn-out and cancer.
