I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Regional Director of Family Preservation Services, Eastern Shore Region. We are a mental health agency which provides counseling for children and families. That is how I make my living. It is a stressful job but rewarding when we can make a difference in the life of a child or family. I also rescue stray cats and kittens. Luckily, my husband has limited me to four cats, which is good, because I could easily become a crazy cat lady. For fun and relaxation, which I don't get enough of, I like to garden (when the weeds aren't winning), cook (on weekends, when I have the time), entertain (whenever I can) and write. I have used writing as a creative and emotional outlet since I was a teenager. I just never did anything with the things I wrote. I am glad I have found this opportunity now. It is time.
