Location: Parma, Ohio, United States

I have lived most of my life in Michigan and Ohio, but have lived in Quincy, Illinois and recently in Lawrence, Kansas. My husband wanted to retire to his hometown of Cleveland, so we moved to a suburb here in May of 2015. My education includes Bachelor's Degrees in Psychology and in Social Work, teaching certification, Master's in Pastoral Ministry and certification in Spiritual Direction. I have taught students of all ages,and have found that working with adults is best for me! Work experience includes teaching grade school to Masters level, being a Pastoral Associate and Director of Religious Education, teaching in ministry formation, diaconal formation, and Loyola University extension courses. I miss the face-to-face of regular courses, but have found that real exchange and learning happens through our on-line courses. My husband Leo and I have been married for 50 years, have two grown children and one grandchild.
