Forty-year background in psychology specializing in career, relationship, and life transition, professional burnout, and behavioral health. I developed many workshops and support groups, primarily for women but also for pain patients, adolescents, etc, and wrote two books along the way.
In tandem with that work, I single-parented two sons, and bought and sold a total of thirty-five properties on both coasts + Oregon.
When I hit my own professional burnout, I left the psychology world and got my real estate broker's license. I've been a broker for the last 12 years.
How are you hoping to grow personally and professionally over the next year?
I'm excited to enlarge my personal and professional community through the Guilde, and through political volunteer work during our country's upcoming elections.
What tool, object or ritual could you not live without?
My knees! Walking or biking are now my daily rituals...to replace my compulsive, daily singles tennis regimen of 35 years.
Where do you hope to see women in 50 years?
In the White House, Congress, governorships, and corporate board rooms in greater numbers than men.
Tell us about one or more women you admire (could be a relative, a friend, a mentor, a cultural heroine)
The two Glorias, Steinem and Allred: trailblazers before it was fashionable as women.
As a mentor I can offer: Help with book proposals, workshop development, real estate investing, parenting.
As a mentee I am looking for: Support for using my skills in new directions.
