Born in Astoria, NY in 1965.
Lots of praying and Catholic schools.
An interesting stint in the US Army Reserves.
A hard left into drugs and alcohol.
And in 1988, the gift begins…
Lots of college and late nights smoking and reading
Shakespeare, Vonnegut, and Albert Camus keep me company late into the night.
Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
I’ve become blind three different times and learn that
Just because I can’t see it, doesn’t mean it isn’t there.
I served as the Global Head of a Private Equity Fund,
Where I learned to build and play nice with others.
I buried my beautiful 39 year old husband.
I am an adult when I write the check for his wake.
I start to understand that I am not God and
No, he doesn’t ask my permission to take away what I love.
Blessed to love again –
And our children change us.
They reshape our hearts.
And they expand what we know about love.
Professionally train at NYU in Personal Skills and Life Coaching.
I follow my heart. Again. And again.
You can hold deep sorrow and find tremendous joy in the same breath.
If you keep breathing…
