I live in East Haddam with my husband, two daughters, 10 and 6. I am an artist, creator, cook, actress, seamstress and gardener. I worked in the medical field for more than 20 years, then I retired because of the chaos of the insurance industry. I started working privately as a gardener/groundskeeper and have found the job I love! I love weeding!
I also love to read and dabble in writing for no one but myself, until this opportunity came to me. I have submitted several six-word memoirs to Smith Magazine online. It's a kind of secret interest of mine. Acting was my other secret desire.
Then two years ago, an opportunity presented itself here in town. Since then, I have performed in two 24-hour theater projects thru the Hygenic Gallery in New London, once here in town with Plays and Poetry and a theatrical reading of "Days of Tears" in Hartford. I have my third 24-theater gig coming up Feb 5.
I am a certified Kripalu Danskinetics instructor. I teach an after-school program at the elementary school and have taught at several preschools, the senior center in Old Saybrook, the YMCA Woman's Wellness Weekend at Camp Hazen for five years and several teacher's workshops.
Presently, I am working with a friend to create a children's music and movement program which we will offer at The Music Bureau in Salem. So, in a nutshell, I keep busy.
I am looking forward to this writing opportunity and offering my experience and insights to other families.
