I finished a B.A. in Psychology and Sociology at IUSB, before going on to
Valparaiso University and Western Michigan University for graduate studies in psychology. Along the way, I worked with autistic children, preschoolers, severely mentally impaired individuals, in adult rehabilitation/habilitation, in outpatient psychiatry at a hospital, and I also taught college part time. Eventually, I took a job at a small college as a Prof. of Psy and Soc. Sci, staying there for 30+ years before retiring. I have recently finished a C.H. in herbology and I am 1/2 way through a doctorate in Naturopathic Psychology.
I just published a travel guide to the Western U.P. of Michigan Much of my time weather permitting is spent doing nature photography which I sell.
