I am a certified Guided Autobiography instructor, and I’ve always been fascinated by people’s life stories. I graduated from Pomona College and have a Master of Arts in Teaching from Harvard School of Education. I taught high school English in public and private schools and have published articles on subjects ranging from the careers of string quartets to volunteers working with the homeless. I have worked in public relations and communications for the Sisters of Mercy for 20 years. I’ve written two books: Notable Excitement: 30 Years of Music at Kohl Mansion and I Am the Bread of Life.
