More about me...

 I live on Cape Cod, Massachusetts where I am involved in many activities. Cotuit Center for the Arts is a favorite place for me. I have studied art there and also volunteered, acted in theatre productions, performed at "Open Mike," and read my poetry in "Summer Shorts." In addition, I have had paintings on exhibit in their gallery. I am happy to be a member of the LIFE community. I love sports of  all kinds and enjoy swimming, tennis, basketball, softball, track, and  soccer. Special Olympics is important to me, and I support them in  every way I can. For many years I have danced with a troupe called  "The Players." I am also involved in many other local organizations. 

Thank you to all my teachers and special friends who encouraged me to create, publish my book and sell my products.
Thank you Juliane for introducing me to the world of advocacy.

Always from my heart,



Welcome to my website!


My Journey...

Began with my love of writing 

and making art.

Continued with publishing a 

book and creating inspirational products: notecards, bookmarks & signed art prints.

And now is in full swing as I encourage others to reach for the stars and to achieve their dreams.


I work to encourage others to be self-advocates ~ and I advocate for organizations. 

With mentoring from Juliane Dillon of the Kennedy Donovan Center Cape Cod Community Services,  I co-founded Cape Advocates Standing Together (CAST). We work to inspire people of all abilities to make their lives awesome. For more information click here.

In 2015, I was thrilled to speak about my work and my small business at the MASS Advocates Standing Strong Annual Conference in Marlborough, Massachusetts. It was a big honor to speak and to receive The Nancy Maynard Leadership Award for leadership and dedication to self-advocacy.

I would love to speak at your organization ~ please contact Juliane, for information about that.
