Born into the depression-burdened south, restrained by the prevailing limitations placed on girls, I came to New York to study design at eighteen rather than succumb to a traditional future. My artistic abilities were assurance that life was chock-full of endless possibilities for a talented young woman who was willing to work. Blue skies rather than glass ceilings existed in my mind.
I entered the textile industry as a designer/stylist, Marriage, children and divorce followed. Subsequent careers included image consulting, founding, fundraising for and running a non-profit organization for disadvantaged women and at-risk youth. I also developed and conducted workshops on maximizing presentation skills both nationally and internationally.
I currently write weekly blogs on UniqueU@xanga.com which are also published by the Huffington Post under Healthy Living, Culture and Post50. The study of metaphysics and the human potential movement were ongoing avid avocations.
As a Life Transition Counselor, I see myself as a role model for maturing productively and wishes to reach an audience that resonates with this approach – aging gracefully and gorgeously!
