Born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1951, I left that city when my father returned from The Korean War in 1953. Embarking on the life of a military brat, I lived in 15 different houses and attended 10 different schools.

Returning to Cleveland in 1968 when my father retired from the U.S. Army, I graduated from high school and earned an associate degree from Lakeland Community College in 1976 and a bachelor’s degree from Cleveland State University in 1983, while working full-time. Evening classes, coffee and doughnuts were my way of life.
Pursuing a career as a legal secretary, I became the publications editor for Kaiser Permanente and director of public relations for the Cleveland Branch of the Northeastern Ohio Chapter of The Arthritis Foundation.
A past member of the International Association of Business Communicators and the Society of Professional Journalists, I also worked as a stringer/newspaper correspondent for The Plain Dealer, The Lake County News-Herald,and The SUN-Messenger newspapers.
A contributor to The Encyclopedia of Cleveland History, I’ve been listed in several editions of Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in the Midwest, and Who’s Who in American Women.
