I grew up in Queens (in New York City) until age 14, when my family moved to rural western Massachusetts. In some ways, Melrose is the most urban residence I've experienced, since I can see the heart of its downtown streets from my window. I love to see the bustle on Saturday mornings, a contrast to the eery late-night emptiness.

I have worked for over 20 years in medical and academic environments, and hold a Masters in Public Health (and Certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language). Since 1989, I have performed freelance editing of manuscripts and grants as "Word's Eye View Editorial & Design Service" (www.words-eye-view.com). My main hobbies are creative writing, hiking, camping, arts & crafts, and travel.
