I am a woman living with heart issues, who has a natural interest in and avocation for medical technology and information. I have an MA in education and taught high school English, social studies and journalism for many years. I am a real estate broker but have worked in many fields, among them editing, public relations and owning and operating my own restaurant. I am author of a lifestyle book on women who do not have children and have appeared as a guest on Oprah and dozens of other television and radio programs. I am currently unmarried and enjoy my two rescued dogs who are my beloved companions. A year ago I had mitral valve repair surgery using the da Vinci robot, and was featured in a Lifetime for Women television segment about my surgery.
