I am the proud mother of a 22-year-old son, whom I adopted from Guatemala when he was an infant. I am a facilitator for (AVP), Alternative To Violence Project, which conducts workshops in prisons, schools and communities on conflict resolution. For fun I am an avid rower. I love to, hike, ski, scuba dive and ride bicycles. I love books, art, art making, films, PBS News Hour, traveling, gardening and sometimes doing nothing.
