Communication Specialist


I have been a Tax Analyst Programmer, Tax Preparer, waitress and cashier.  I was born in Ohio, raised in Pennsylvania and I also lived in Florida, where my daughter, now a young woman, was born.

As a child, my mother was always saying I should be on stage.  I haven’t lost that knack, as I enjoy connecting with people, making them laugh and ‘entertaining’ them.  The more people in the room, the better!  I miss the seasons of the east coast, especially the snow.  There is something about the snow and the twinkling appeal it provides that will always be in my heart and childlike eyes. 

Favorite music – book – movie
I grew up playing the clarinet and singing in the choir at school.  I am not sure if that is where my love for feeling music comes from.  I absolutely LOVE ALL kinds of music, as it speaks to my soul.  I have the uncanny ability to know and retrieve the words of most songs that were sung in the 70 and 80s.  My tastes in books have changed over the years and the ones I own in my bookshelves have served their purpose.  I enjoy utilizing the words on the pages for whatever my current seeking in life seems to be.  At present, the Bible plays the biggest role and numerous daily devotionals.  The last book that I finished that had the most impact was “Safer than a Known Way” by Pamela Rosewell Moore.   I can watch and enjoy most any movie but I seem to be attached to sci-fi.  Probably the quest of understanding the unknown.

Hiking, baking sweets, dancing, encouraging and hugging others, reading to escape to the world of the author, LAUGHING.  I do not enjoy golf, however if Tiger Woods is playing and his magic is ‘on’, I am watching.
