About Me

This is a place where you can find some thoughts on a mindful health style while living life in the moments. We all want to live a life of fullness. So how do we do it? The answer is to ride the waves and don’t tame them. Exercise your mind, body, and soul. These are the mirepoix of life. It’s the foundation for a life of fullness. You’ll find some writings on life, health, and mindfulness here. I’ll share my favorite places and food, nutritional supplements, and a few secrets. And of course some moments with my dog, Louie.

I live in Connecticut where you learn to cultivate a keen sense of mindfulness, since the weather can change within a matter of moments.  As a Connecticut native, I have been privy to dodging deer with my car, being stuck between the Red Sox and Yankee pride, and knowing someone who knows someone at any event I attend. Heck, it’s a small state.

Some other places that I called home for a very short period of time were Providence Rhode Island where I graduated from Providence College with a Bachelors of Science in Business and French. I also lived in Switzerland to study more French and learned to find my love of exploring new things. This is where I also developed a sense of self. I found that it was important to take care of me-through real food, smart exercise, and making time to play.

My work experience over the years has ranged from pharmaceutical sales representative, Pilates instructor, community college teacher and real estate agent. My favorite job has been, and will always be, mom. I believe there is always a “new motherhood” in the offing, no matter how old your children get.

I have two adult daughters and a dog named Louie. Louie and I like to devote our time as a registered animal therapy team to assisted living, hospitals, libraries, and Universities. My writing has appeared in MidlifeBoulevard, Mothering in the Middle and my essay, “Mom-On- Demand,” appeared in  the book The Zen of Midlife Mothering.

You can usually find me walking my dog, sitting at a coffee shop, writing, conducting a Waggleview® (dog owner interview) and practicing a mindful health style.

You’re the meaning of the moments, so get involved in life.
