About Me

I was born in the USA 1952. I traveled & lived in Europe (The Netherlands 7 years). I am single with two grown children. I am a survivor of sexual assault/domestic violence & have worked in the field of advocating for the rights of people w/ disabilities, women & the Deaf community since 1977. I have been a state training director, customer service manager, domestic violence support group coordinator, program manager providing independent living services (Deaf), a coordinator of victim services for the Deaf in Wisconsin (USA). I am culturally/linguistically sensitive to diverse cultures & continue to be passionately committed to supporting the empowerment of women to develop healthy boundaries & discover/utilize the power of choice! I'm so very pleased to meet you all, & look forward to being a part of this global community!

My Vision

The "voice" of women in the forefront affecting the state of the planet.


As advocate (3 decades+), director/program management positions, when I'm told "no" I find a way! Good Trouble shooter! DisabIlity/LBGTQ
