I have many stories that are from my life. I started out as an Archaelogist in Alaska, then traveled 6 months on a freighter ship finishing undergraduate and sailing the entire Atlantic. Then 20 years as a Chef and business owner. This led to experiences on the streets w drugs and gangs (to say the least-including murder, corruption......), then back to sobriety after 10 yeards and got my Masters in Social Work where I learned more about myself than ever before. I worked in Hospice, Palliative Care, and currently Primary Care where i have seen people from the start of a terminal illness to their death, working w them and their familes the whole way.
