I am a 63 year old mother, grandmother, wife, sister and friend to many. I was born in New York City, raised in New York and New England, and lived on St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands for several years. I graduated from a small college in Massachusetts and have lived in Arizona, Southern California, Concord, CA and now in Sonora for the past 13 years.

I am self employed as an independent insurance appraiser for vehicle damage and travel all over the Mother Lode on a daily basis. I am Jewish by birth and currently am a member and Board Member of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Tuolumne County of which I am a past President.

I have been on the MLK Jr. Committee for the past five years, being on the Board for the last three. I enjoy reading, cooking, walking and watching old movies. I have been an activist since the 1960s when I first began working for Democratic Presidential Candidates and continue to do so as a member of the Social Justice Committee of UUFTC (above).
