An avid reader, she also strives to "breathe spirit" through dancing, yoga, painting, and appreciating the rugged beauty of nature. Since her retirement from teaching, she has focused on writing creative nonfiction. Her passions include playing and learning with her grandchildren and finding the divine through prayer.

Laura Romeyn also provided the art for the front cover background of Breathing Spirit, as she has enjoyed acrylic abstract painting for several years.
