I live in Rhode Island after four years in Italy where I traveled a TON and learned to cook some amazing food with a true, Italian nonna - I also had the extra weight to show for it!

(Lost it all without dieting or exercise...ask me how.)

Currently: I teach ESL in a low incidence district. I am launching & running the P.I.G. Project, ESL Resource Hub, & a couple of magazines - join me on Periscope for Word Nerd Wednesdays, P.I.G. get togethers (How many P.I.Gs have YOU planted?) and some Cancer Q&As.

(I'm not a doctor nor do I play one on t.v...or anywhere else, but I have had it twice. It runs in the family - I've learned a thing or two or three along the way about fear (terror, really), pain management, nausea/puking, the use of humor, and options...as well as the bigger lesson that is often behind cancer's arrival - and I love to share so you, too, can kick cancer in the patookis).

I enjoy connecting great people to amazing resources. I love travel/food/culture, photography, birdwatching (also known as Cat T.V. at our house), hanging out with my puppycats, and reading books.

Follow me - sandragahlinger - on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest to join us for the P.I.G. Project!
