Striving to be authentic in the written word and exhibit a genuine quality lies in touching the creative core of intelligence. I write about the arts, living, life lessons, spirituality, art, health and states of mind.
The formats I use are to blog, write poetry, short stories, and diverse educational material in my areas of expertise. Published in national journals, I also have 5 children’s books, and have received the Excellence in Patient Education Award (2006) from the University of Michigan.
