Wow! That life went fast! What to write...? Like most of the students I meet, I have faced that question so often. Ah, to be humorous, pithy, brilliant, mysterious, existential....Alas, banal! I spent my childhood riding my bike and reading in kid-made forts in small-town South Florida. After graduating from college, I traveled in Western Europe and stopped at John Lennon's house, I moved to New York where I did not get hired by Mad magazine but taught fourth grade in a Harlem school and began grad school. I then moved to North Carolina and finished grad school and packed up my VW beetle and headed to Colorado! Throughout the years I have loved reading, swimming, walking, hiking, the Beatles, most other music, children, play, laughter, sunlight, moonlight, mountains, oceans, chocolate, visiting, and some other things....Fast forward through construction work, bartending, waitressing, more school, teaching, teaching, counseling practice, parenting, more teaching, and the writing center. The writing center represents to me such an exciting opportunity to be with people in the reciprocal process of developing skills and relationships. Each situation represents a mutual challenge and a chance for creativity. I am grateful to be a part of this very valuable resource.
