- About Me
- A researcher and problem-solver by nature and inclination, I am a student of philosophy, comparative religions, martial arts, history, herbalism, needlecrafts, literature, genealogy and other subjects as they occur to me. I love to take an idea and fly with it. I have the ability to see many solutions and options.
Unless you know me very well, I tend to be reserved. This sometimes leads people to think that I am standoffish, at least until they get to know me well. I usually remain calm under pressure but then I get the shakes later. I try to make careful decisions and think before acting. I tend to communicate concisely, but don’t be surprised if I take my time responding to you: I want to get it right.
My parents are both from large families so I prefer being part of a clan whether it is one of blood or heart. My husband and I went to State University of New York at Geneseo where we met. We have been married over 36 years and have an adult son, two cats and a dog. I’ve been known to drink good whiskey, shoot pool and I do needlework while watching football.
I grew up camping and love to camp and spend time in the woods. I was a Girl Scout growing up. My parents were very supportive of me and my siblings in scouting. Now I am paying it forward by being a Girl Scout volunteer and a member of the adult volunteer training facilitation team in the Colonial Coast Council of GSA.
Born and bred in the rural mountains of upstate New York of Celtic-Germanic farm stock, I began learning about the land and family traditions from my grandfather and I’ve been a tree-hugging ground-worshipper ever since. I have discovered over the years that I enjoy teaching as much as learning and I teach a variety of classes in local venues and at festivals.

“May you live as long as you want and love as long as you live.” Robert Heinlein, Time Enough for Love
