I graduated from the University of Bridgeport with a Bachelor of Science degree in Journalism/Communications.

My areas of concentration were news and advertising/public relations. The University of Bridgeport prepared me well and provided a firm foundation for my career. The courses I took allowed me to research, verify facts, and write. These are skills I continue to use and find very helpful.

For approximately 22 years I designed and implemented medical education programs for a variety of therapeutic categories for the pharmaceutical industry. The educational vehicles were either continuing medical education (CME) or promotional. The CME programs were developed in conjunction with medical thought leaders (eg, physicians, nurses, and other ancillary health care professionals).

The promotional materials were reviewed by a regulatory process and had to abide with Food Drug Administration rules and regulations. I began my career as an editorial assistant where I researched and edited manuscripts that included monographs; books; slides; articles; videos; and etc. I also served as a ghost writer for articles for various peer reviewed journals. My final achievement was serving as a senior vice president. In this position I was able to mentor subordinates and share my skill set.

To further enhance my interpersonal skills I became a certified professional coach (CPC) in 2011. My client base are primarily exceptional individuals. They are mostly individuals that have been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). These individuals ages range from five to mid 30s. My role varies and is guided by the goals of the individual and/or parents.

What are my most memorable and gratifying life achievements. The first is being challenged in a career that allowed me to continuously be creative, flexible, learn and enable me to use my formal education daily. My second is being able to raise my granddaughter's reading five levels during her third grade summer. How did I do that? I used the foundational skills I learned during by elementary education (eg, utilizing vowel sounds, breaking words down by syllables, and daily reading). Lastly, I won the spelling bee in fourth grade. I consider myself a nerd because I enjoy research and value the written word.

In summary I believe we are all learning able. I make every effort to meet the learner where they are at and provide support that encourages growth.
