About Me

In addition to water fitness, I worked for over 12 years as a therapist and Program
Director in an out-patient mental health setting where I specialized in adolescent and
substance abuse treatment. My husband, Steve, and I have 4 kids, all of whom have
been involved in high level sports (no swimmers, though). Members enjoy the fact that
Steve is a sports anchor on WBZ-TV 4 and often provide feedback regarding which ties
look best on him. When I’m not working at the Vanderbilt, I’m working at the Ron Burton
Training Village, a year-round training program that enriches the lives of challenged
youth (spiritually, mentally, emotionally & physically).
