I am who I am and can do what I can do because of the amazing people in my life.


I acknowledge and thank my Mom and Dad, brothers Larry and Richard and my most amazing children Meri and EJ, my son-in-law Sean, and my five beautiful nieces, Noreen, Debbie, Linda, Lisa and Patti.  I am truly blessed for who you are and were and the lessons you have taught me.


My non-biological family: Fran and Bruce, Tom, Sumner, Sheila and Sam, John and Kathy, and Christine have been sources of love, empowerment, support and caring for many years.  They and my children make my life joyful every day.


I have been very blessed with the teachers - both traditional and transformational - I’ve had in my life.  To each of the following I thank for contributing to who I am as a person and especially as a teacher:  Dotty Gonson, Vic Silvestri, Don and Gay Lumsden, Mike Woodnick, the late Pete Eastman, Werner Erhard, Marjie Parrot, Randy McNamara, Sandy Robbins, Paul Turro, Julia Dederer, Bob Fritz, and the trainers of Insight.


I have also been blessed by always having the best students. To each of my students whether in my communication studies, mass media and theatre courses, or my transformational workshops and individual coaching, I thank you. You have taught me more than I could have ever taught you.


Last, I acknowledge you, my newest student, for having the adventurousness and courage to engage in your own life.
