I have been a student of astrology since my 20's, when the search for answers to life's big questions led me beyond the beliefs of my upbringing into the realm of metaphysics.  


From an early age I had questions about the world and our place in it.  In particular, I have wrestled with the reality of human suffering.  Why must we suffer?  What can be done about it?  My desire to understand the ‘why’ of things is the fuel that has driven my study and practice of astrology.


I hold a master's degree in social work (MSW), an expression of my lifelong interest in public service and social justice.  I earned my bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, graduating Phi Beta Kappa ("Love of learning is the guide of life").  During the day I work as a case manager at a psychiatric hospital.  I live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with my two cats and my daughter, when she's home from art school.
