I am “retired” from a 45 year career in healthcare. A nursing background was a foundation for finding and creating new ways to provide healthcare to teens, migrant families, individuals, families and communities; and new ways to provide care that were generative and life giving to those giving and recieving the care. A desire to help create environments where all can thrive-not just select few-was and is a directional force in my life. I am looking for communtiy to bring my energies, skills, and more to help craft a future that is life giving to all.
