Bio

I retired in 1993 after 25 years with the department. My major projects during that time were the founding of the M.S.U. day-care center (with Bob Boger), and years later, the initiation of the doctoral specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy (with Dolores Borland.) After M.S.U., I was in full-time clinical practice of marriage and family therapy for five more years before fully retiring in 1998. We then moved back to Austin, TX. For the past 7 years I have been a teacher and the coordinator for an adult education program titled "Foundation Studies for Anthroposophy" at the Austin Waldorf School. Recently I have initiated a Waldorf Teacher Training program. My main hobbies  are bee-keeping, organic gardening, and wood-working . I am enjoying this phase of life immensely.
