I'm a mom, a retired ED nurse, a writer, an actor in community theatre, a publicist, and a quasi-chef. I am interested in spirituality, New Age, Ayurveda, yoga, tai chi, qi gong, exercise, health care (30 years as an RN), anything to do with human interest, and anything that I can do to help others. I am a community activist for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (LI Chapter), PETA, ASPCA, and environmental issues. I'm a gluten free, dairy free vegan, and I post pictures of most of my meals on Instagram. I've been writing for many years, and whenever I need to blow off steam, I do not call "Bennett" from Commando, but I write. I live with my teenaged daughter who has completed her first year of college, my husband, and two very goofy dogs.
