When I was child my mother often said, "You never sit still, you are always moving around". And it has been consistently true… for I have lived in many places and worked at many jobs
When I myself was a young mother, I started a nursery school for my two pre-school sons and then, after going for my masters degree in Early Childhood Education, I became a director of several day care centers.
Next came my work as a Parent Educator in Santa Barbara CA and then soon opening with a partner The Parent Connection, in Arlington MA, a resource center for parents and their young children. I also worked briefly for the MA Department of Social Services and soon was hired to be the Director of A Safe Place, in Nantucket MA, a center to prevent the abuse of women and children. This was one of my most satisfying jobs...fundraising, volunteer coordinating, marketing, public speaking, putting on large events and more.
But eventually, deciding I needed to change my focus, at age fifty-seven I earned my yoga teaching certificate and went on to open Beacon Light Yoga Center of Boston. There I offered classes in Kripalu yoga, prenatal yoga and partner yoga, but also taught in colleges, corporations and on retreats to Negril Jamaica.
Again my focus shifted to begin addressing Aging, and how to stay young while growing older. Writing my published column, "Boomer Talk", allows me a platform to look at all the complex aging issues, while offering some inspiration.
As I reflect back, all my jobs followed a natural progression, with each one shifting organically into the next, and always with the consistent theme of bringing people together for learning, and most often, for fun.
