ABOUT ME:

Ciao,

 

I've been the Health Guide at the HealthCentral schizophrenia website since 2007.

 

I'm excited to continue along in this role and eager to "talk" with everyone here who writes a SharePost, asks a question, or posts a comment.

 

My goal is to be a compassionate voice for peers and family members and our friends and lovers.

 

In June 2000, I obtained a masters in library and information science (MS) from Pratt Institute, Brooklyn. Since then I've worked over 14 years as a public service librarian with a focus on providing career counseling service to library customers.


My vision I firmly believe in is that individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia, bipolar, and other mental illnesses can live full and robust lives.

 

Long before the recovery movement came into vogue, I had obtained a job as an administrative assistant to the director of an insurance firm in 1990.

 

Since that failed career in the gray flannel insurance field, I've become a mental health activist who seeks to cheer on peers that a better life is possible.

 

"Yes you can!" is my motto.

 

Off-duty from my two jobs: fitness is my number-one priority so I do a training routine at the gym two to three days a week. I'm also an artist and a cook.

 

My memoir, Left of the Dial, is available now online and via special order from bookstores.
