About me

Industry Education
Occupation Graduate Assistant
Location Crown Point, Indiana, United States
Introduction I'm currently under the influence of testosterone tyranny. I'm Mom to two adult sons (29 and 22), a 7 year old son and my precious 1 year old grandson. I have a B. A. degree in Human Development and am working on a Master's of Science in Human Development/Family Studies with an additional certification in Addictions Counseling. I teach an undergrad class in Human Development as part of a teaching assistantship. I love teaching and my career path may take a turn in that direction. I "retired" as a Paramedic a few years ago but still I teach CPR independently. I hope to tackle program development/research/policy change in human services.......current human services policies do little to serve the community or advance humanity! I've volunteered for a Fire Department and Civil Defense. I have a heart to protect people who are unable to protect themselves. Currently, I volunteer with two organizations (VAS and NIAGS) that advocate and guardian (through the court system) incapacitated adults. My passion is ballroom dance an I compete with my fabulous instructor. Dancing brings me joy and is my buffer and my therapy.
Interests Competitive ballroom dance, Belly dance, reading, snowshoeing, baking, cooking, talking with friends, boxing, teaching, writing, ballroom dance, ballroom dance, ballroom dance and more ballroom dance.... Would like to travel to Spain, Paris, Ireland, Italy and Argentine someday.........
