I was born in Minneapolis and am an enrolled member of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe, White Earth Reservation. I raised a wolf of my own while I lived in Wisconsin. The experience forever changed my vision and perspective regarding the depth of emotion and intellect of all animals.
I retired from a career in law enforcement, graduated from the FBI National Academy, and have a doctorate in management. I am a member of Mensa, Intertel, and ISPE-the thousand.
I currently reside in Virginia where I pursue painting, writing and becoming a better equestrienne.
