Interests
I have many interests that keep me super busy. My main interest is working for peace and justice in this world. I have 4 daughters ranging in age between 17 -34. I have 2 grandchildren, who are my delight and who spur me on to want to work for a future for all children and the future of this beautiful planet we call home. I am an avid gardener. I love to grow vegetables and lots of flowers. I homeschooled my children and in doing so got to school myself as well.
About Me
I love people and I love to learn about their lives. I think the elder years can be a very precious time, even when someone is dealing with memory loss. I love to try and figure out what is important to the elder person and try to facilitate that activity as much as they are able. I love to sing and do creative activities.
