The career choices I've made, over the past almost 35 years, have been to focus on positions that allowed me to inform, educate and influence. I have stood on the edge; decided life is worth living; gained understanding one must do what they can to make a positive difference. I realized that I have work that is left to be done; that I must live the type of life that keeps her spirit alive. I am... sharing life with my soul mate; a writer; a photographer; a Pittsburgher; the Publisher of Stark County, Ohio News and Views...; a Sigma Tau Gamma; a Phi Theta Kappan; a graduate of Stark State College; a Pittsburgh Steelers fan; a golfer; a marketing/public relations practitioner; an activist; a resume expert; a survivor of clinical depression. I've been blessed and am thankful.
