  About Me
I launched my career studying nursing for two years before changing majors.  I received an Associate of Arts Degree in Human Services with a Certificate in Substance Abuse Counseling.  From there I went on to Rhode Island College, where I double majored and received my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology and Bachelor of Social Work Degree.  After moving to Maine, I attended the University of Maine, Orono, where I received my Master of Social Work Degree.  I have worked in the fields of mental health and the addictions in various settings and levels of care for 25+ years.  I have a special appreciation for cultural diversity having lived in different parts of the Country before making Maine my permanent home 25 years ago. I share my home with several feline companions as well.  My favorite pastimes include snowmobiling in the winter, sea kayaking in the summer, playing the mandolin in my band, hiking, camping and going to music festivals.
