Author. Artist. Advocate.
July 1, 2020
I'm excited to share the great news that, The Regional Arts & Cultural Council has awarded me a grant to write and perform the 3rd installment of my, "Reports from the Elder Front" series. This will happen during Fertile Ground 2021. January 28th - Feb. 7th. I will be reaching out to work with the senior community. .
Lost in Elder World
2nd Installment of the series:
"Reports from the Elder Front"
After finding assisted living for her mother & pooch, a daughter realizes this is
only the beginning of her crash course on elderly advocacy; while soldiering on
she uses humor to not drown in the sadness of elders without advocates.

I’m an author and performer. My illness memoir, “If Only George Clooney Were My Doctor,” is an off-beat take on my time on life support.
My influences are Spalding Gray, Bill Maher, Maureen Dowd, Jon Stewart, Samantha Bee, David Sedaris and Caitlin Moran among others...humor with a bent to the political along with pop culture nnd music references.
My writing about illness advocacy has been performed as staged readings in New York City. This Spring, my writing on caregiving was in ensemble theater pieces at the George Street Playhouse in New Jersey, and a community reading at the Profile Theater in Portland.
I consider myself part of the Narrative Medicine
Movement. Authors whether they're doctors, patients, or caregivers discover moments of transcendence
Another passion is
immigration, My father's parents came through Ellis Island. I’ve explored this through my photo/literature work; shown in juried art shows.
Hypatia In The Woods, a women’s writing residency was kind enough to give me a scholarship. I’m thrilled to be part of the Writer’s Guild Initiative mentorship program.
