I've spent the last few years teaching (and learning!) creative writing, drama, and ESL with Worcester youth and young artists in the city - it's some of the most fulfilling work I've had the privilege of engaging with, and why I am excited about my future career as an educator.

I realize I rely a lot more on social media to be connected these days. I try to use that platform in my own circle not to add to the noise, but to check in with friends. I often just ask, how are you? Friends from all over share how they are passing their COVID days – the good, the bad, and the challenging. It’s made me realize that we all need to be asked that question, but also heard when we answer. And then we see we are all in this, figuring it out day by day.
How are you?
I have distributed 30 copies of John Lewis' boo, "Across That Bridge" and have 25 more on order. His thoughts on how to work toward "The Beloved Community" have inspired me to be more patient and loving with others with whom I might have significant differences. I also serve on the Board of WAMS (Worcester Area Mission Society), a non-profit organization committed to working with others to help bring about economic and social equity to our society.

Sadly, treating my clients during the initial Covid Scare was prohibited. After 30 plus years of practice, I had to close my doors for 5 months. I continued to pay rent and unfortunately this closing set me back in many ways.I felt guilty not able to treat people that were relying on my services for pain relief etc. During this 3rd wave I plan to stay open to service my clients. I will continue to practice Acupuncture in a sterile and safe manner required by law. This is standard requirement for Licensed Acupuncturists in the Commonwealth of Ma. Lic. By Board of Reg. In Medicine.

social distance and wear you mask. Please :)
I organize and encourage socializing with one or a small group WHILE physically distancing. Being safe does not mean solitary confinement. People need to interact and laugh to deal with the stress in their life. I also spend weeks at a time staying with 96 year old mother several hours from me as I share caretaking with several siblings. As I can not teach painting at senior centers, long term care facilities and children's camps during all this I do paintings of peoples pets and homes to continue using my art abilities and bring joy with art. I continue to offer online instructor...more...
Smiling at strangers, or sharing a laugh with everyone we see in a day can really bring a change to peoples being and mood
I am honored when people have told me “I always feel better after I am with you.”
Not being able to share smiles has been the hardest part of mask wearing. I...more...
