I am retired from the medical field and now live in Western New York State with my husband after returning from 7 years living in Malaysia. I took up writing and blogging as hobbies after I retired. I am liberal and enjoy politics, food and animals, especially my 2 Cattle Dogs, Cato and Lucky. I hope to make some money writing for Medium to supplement my retirement income. I hope you enjoy reading my articles.

Feisty Ameri-Finn. I like black coffee, saunas, forests, bookstores, the elusive beauty of the high desert, exploring the world & adrenaline. Proud member of the #FunnelHacker family. Resolved to conquer a massive TBI, C-PTSD & depression by transforming myself into a researching, self-advocating, question asking, faith-filled, prayer warrior, uncrushable badass. Perhaps I was given these dragons to show others that they too, can slay them.

I've been a writer since a very young age. I write to clear my thoughts, sometimes to express a concept that is in my mind, but not quite clear. I enjoy sharing lessons I have learned from life.
