Although never widowed, she is intimately aware of the life transition that follows the loss of a beloved spouse. Having raised 4 daughters, she has walked the path of transition that follows becoming an empty nester. She has experienced career changes, both of her own choice and following being downsized in challenging economies. She has experienced retirement and had to look that major transition in the face and discover her purpose and passion for the contributions she now makes during this time of life.

Educated with a Bachelor of Arts degree, certification as a paralegal, and a Master of Science degree, she has also found satisfaction in continually pursuing self-education and training in a variety of fields.
