I grew up in Delaware where I loved to study wildlife as I explored the Chesapeake Bay area with my grandfather and his prized Labrador Retrievers. I live in Newburyport, Massachusetts where I still pursue my childhood love and joy of the beauty of nature along the banks of the nearby Merrimack River.
I hold degrees in occupational therapy from Boston University and counseling and school psychology from Immaculata University. I have worked in private and public schools as a therapist and educator. I wrote the book to teach children how to become their own naturalist and to connect them with the many life lessons nature provides. I know you will enjoy Wings in the Wind as much as I enjoyed writing it.
