About Me

I was born and raised in MN, and currently lives in a Twin Cities suburb with my (recently retired) husband of 35+ years. My husband and I are parents to 4 grown children, 2 daughters-in-law, and 2 guys who’ve been hanging around their daughters long enough to qualify as family! I work part-time as an RN, but hope to find enough time to join my husband in seeing the sights of the world! Times away from home can’t stretch on too long though, because I love the beauty of the 4 seasons, and want to be able to share them with my 6, 4, and 1-yr-old grandchildren - three little people who make my heart dance! I’m also excited to be entering a stage in life that allows time to explore the wonders of the world through books, writing, art, photography, music [especially flute and voice], gardening, needlework, holistic therapies, spirituality, cooking, conversations with friends, and the endless possibilities of being open to life! Beyond that, I hope to do what I can to alleviate problems around the globe, so at least some travel will revolve around the needs of an ailing world. I’m especially interested in exploring the benefits of sound therapy - a good way to combine medical knowledge with a love of music. I have a great fascination about the connections that occur in families – and how those can make people feel whole, even if members are spread far and wide. A favorite picture is of my 1-yr-old granddaughter’s hand resting on my 90-yr-old mother’s hand. I look forward to experiencing the wonders that materialize in the joining of the lives of two specially connected groups of people on opposite ends of the age spectrum - grandparents and grandchildren. We share not only family connections, but also the wisdom we possess – one born of experience, the other of innocence. Let the discovery begin!
