Hi, all! I have such fond memories of growing up in South Pas., and didn't fully appreciate that until just a few years ago.

After quite awhile in the corporate world -- serving as media spokesperson for the L.A. Times and some non-profit work -- I am now my own boss. Have my own private geriatric care management practice, which is very rewarding. What's that, you might ask? I'm a kind of social worker who specializes in older adults and all related issues. I work with quite a few baby boomers who are struggling to make the right decisions for their aging parents. They're stressed and in the dark, never having having faced these problems/issues before. I counsel and advise, and connect with with local resources that will address their issues. Like to think that I save people time as well as money by helping them make the right decisions for their loved one(s).

After years in the private sector and working for too many bad bosses, it's great to be my own. boss.
