I have been a member of the Athletic Club Northwest for over 35 years, and I look forward to my weekly classes in salsa, tai chi, stretch, and fit mix classes there.
I am a member of the Bet Haverim Synagogue chorus and feel much joy when performing during the High Holy Days, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, or in concerts. Singing opens my heart and brings me so much pleasure.
I have volunteered for over 18 years with the elderly at The Jewish Home. I am so grateful for the opportunity to connect with this population as they offer gifts love, wisdom, and the sharing of life experiences.
I am part of a dream interpretation group. I am fascinated by the guidance that dreams offer and have been recording my dreams for over 15 years. I treasure the insights and knowledge that the group members share so freely.
I retired from teaching in the public school system after 30 years. During the last 13 years of teaching, I created a unique public speaking program for elementary students in which over 1000 students benefitted. I continue to share my passion for teaching/coaching others to express freely in my start up business, "Express Yourself with JOY!" I now work with students from ages 8 to 108 in public speaking.
I am passionate about living an authentic life and about uncovering all of who I already am. As I let go of outdated beliefs and behaviors that no longer serve me, I continually discover new parts of myself. My life continually grows richer and more meaningful. I am so grateful for the many opportunities that come my way and for all the wonderful people in my life.
