Welcome to It is a pleasure corresponding with my readers! Thank you all for your input and advice, helping me write and rewrite, create new products, and connecting with all of you through writing, speaking and publishing.

I teach Business Writing and Speaking at the Welch College of Business at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT. January to May is considered the Spring semester which I take as my time to Spring into action. Now is the perfect time to be planning summer travel. I like to go different places and try doing a variety of things. One summer I drove cross country to work as a breakfast lunch cook in a designated wilderness location, Stehekin, WA. Another summer I was an oral interpreter in Denali National Park, Alaska.

Let’s change that, one traveler at a time! 

Coming soon will be news of my publishing plans, along with updates on a new edition of my award-winning travel book, Immersion Travel USA: The Best and Most Meaningful Volunteering, Living, and Learning Excursions; and two new travel books: Hostels to Hotels with Heart: Accommodations Around the World with a Volunteer Component and Wildlife Volunteer: What to Know, How to Help and Where to Go. I’m also looking forward to sharing my fiction and nonfiction reflecting my lifelong interest in mental health and well-being. There will also be excerpts from a new work of fiction on what makes a family a family and and raising children. I love what I do and sharing it all with you.
