I was born and raised in Lovington, IL, studied at the University of Illinois for four years. I worked in community and long term care programs for the elderly in Illinois for more than thirty years and continue to live in Lovington, IL.

Biographical and Professional Information

I studied occupational therapy and therapeutic recreation at the University of Illinois 1955 to 1959; Gerontology at Eastern Illinois University in 1973 and Activity Coordination at Youngstown State University in 1990. I worked in community and long term care programs for the elderly for thirty years and retired to care for my mother in Lovington, IL. I am a free lance writer of books about methods of providing cognitive stimulation for the elderly and the importance of doing so. Six of my books have been published by Gary Grimm and Associates and I write regular articles for A NEW DAY magazine for activity professionals.
