I’m a forever young type of woman, having raised 7 children who are now all out and on their own, and have 4 adorable grandchildren that I enjoy spending time with. Two of my awesome offspring are transgender, and at least a couple more identify as queer.
I have been a Registered Nurse since I was 20, but never embraced traditional western medicine for myself or my family. In the last few years I discovered Ayurveda, and am now a certified Ayurvedic Practitioner with a passion for working with women like me – post menopausal and needing better health, more balance, and vibrant energy so they can carry out their life purpose.
I’m updating this in late 2021, and am happy to report that I have been happily married for almost 4 years. They say the third time’s the charm, and it seems to be so. I wrote a bit about it in a post you can read here. I’ve been called a hippie, and although I really don’t know what others mean by that, ok, I’ll take it. I’ve always bucked the system a bit, but now, as I get older, I’m finding that to be even more true!
I held some fairly dogmatic beliefs for about 20 years, but since about 2009, I have become more progressive and open-minded, and am constantly exploring and updating those beliefs. Since March of 2014 I have meditated regularly twice daily, and this practice is now the core of my spirituality.
I have worked full time, quit my job with the idea of opening a wellness practice, then returned to work full time as a case manager. Last year I quit my job again and did a couple of contract gigs, and now, at the age of 65, I plan to return to work full time for a year or so. After that, who knows?
This is just a little bit about me. Someday maybe I’ll write a book about my life.
