I look back on my career and realize I've really had a great life!
As a medical/political editor, I got to meet Walter Cronkite, interview George W. Bush (then Texas governor), Dr. Susan Love (writer of Doctor Susan Love's Breast Book), Willem Kolff, M.D. (Inventor of several Artificial Organs) and many others.
For 8 years I was in charge of the photo library at Scenic Hudson, an environmental non-profit that works to prevent development along the Hudson River. I had access to some of the finest photographers and images, including transparencies of original Hudson River School of Art paintings. I also provided communication such as park brochures and kiosks, quarterly newsletters, public relations and annual reports.
As a writer, editor, graphic artist and photographer, I worked at a daily newspaper, The Poughkeepsie Journal, where I put together themed magazines (Tourism, Homes, Bridal, Back to School...) I had a wonderfully encouraging boss and she chose my images to be covers for many of those magazines.
Today I enjoy traveling and sharing my images of this beautiful world we live in. I love finding new ways to show the beauty of a person or a scene. I embrace the opportunity to share – even for a moment – an image that depicts what I see and feel while photographing. I've been fortunate to get to travel and I’ve been blessed with wonderful mentors who have helped me grow as a photographic artist.
