About Me I never thought of myself as an activist but here I am. I am a writer with a NYC profile and a contributor to a magazine. I lean toward holistic solutions (mind-body-spirit)to challenges. I have been a consultant to Court TV and been a member of a brain trust that developed technology for Homeland Security before there was a need for HLS. Also, my efforts supported, were involved and successful in having the most diverse and largest urban university system in the world, the City University of NY (CUNY--I am an alumn), adopt and grant the first degreed program in the alternative health modalities. I ran several lecture series that doubled the amount of scholarship dollars my Alumni Association was able to donate to worthy students. I have appeared on TV (the NYers and others), radio (including international radio), been featured in several newspapers including NY POST, NY NEWSDAY, etc.


A portion of my proceeds from my recently released reality writing book, PARADISE COSYS--A Victim's Daughter Fights Back Against Elder Abuse, will be donated to a legitimate non-profit organization acting on behalf of the elderly in America.
