I'm retired now but was formerly a vice president at a California
community college and hold a PhD from UCLA (go Bruins!) Currently I
spend a lot of my time volunteering. One of my volunteer
experiences is at a fair trade shop which sells handmade folk art
made by artisans from developing countries. As a non profit we are
able to pay these craftsmen a fair wage. I am also a CASA which is
a court appointed advocate for abused and neglected children and
For exercise I do yoga and tai chi and am also seeking a martial
ars studio. I love to read, crochet (which I do for fun and
profit), and babysit my 2 year old grandson. I consider myself
spiritual but am definitely not religious.
I've traveled extensively in the US, Canada, Mexico and the
Caribbean. In Europe I've traveled to Germany and Sweden and in
Asia to Japan, Korea and Hong Kong.
