Eastern Mennonite High School, 1982. Eastern Mennonite University, BA in English with minor in journalism, 1986. Penn State University, Master of Community Psychology.
I've enjoyed taking classes and listening to hours of podcasts and videos on mindfulness, connflict transformation, and trauma resilience and mediation. I am grateful to have completed STAR I & II level training (Strategies for Trauma Awareness and Resilience) program at Eastern Mennonite University. And, I became a certified life coach in 2018.
I enjoy creating space for people to be together, whether that's hosting a big family Sunday dinner or a group of friends around a camp fire. I love to work up a good sweat on a long walk/hike, clearing brush in the woods on our property, or dancing alone in my basement with free weights. I've always had a soft spot for all animals and love having pets, noticing the frog who lives in our mulch near the spigot, and moving worms off the road after a rainstorm.
