About the Author

Born in 1940 in Columbus, Ohio, I shared my home with my parents and a sister older than me. As I worked my way through the education stream I completed high school and graduated from Capital University with a degree in Elementary Education. Within the next year I began teaching, got married, and then pregnant.

My husband and I, along with our two sons, moved frequently within the state of Ohio, to wherever he was working. In the process I graduated from Miami University with a degree in Guidance and Counseling and spent a total of 16 years as a teacher and elementary school counselor.

Life changed dramatically in 1987 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was the chemotherapy for six months that essentially ended my career. My legs ended up weak, my mind having a hard time concentrating, and my energy greatly reduced. I went on disability retirement and am eternally thankful to State Teacher's of Ohio Retirement System.

Following divorce, I dated and then married my masseur in 1998. Together we moved to southern Arizona where my health is better, thanks to the climate.

I love to hear personal stories and am in pursuit of writing a series of books beginning, Personal Encounters. This year is the first, "Personal Encounters with Cancer." It is an inspirational read.

Cancer changed my life, but not my attitude. Whenever I have an opportunity I talk with individuals and small groups. I have been trained to be a listener and use these skills in many ways.
