I discovered my voice and the power of poetry in a writing group working through Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way in the mid-nineties. I continued to write around the edges of my life – filled with family, “billable work”, too many cats, a house in need of constant report, continuing education and community volunteering – until my decision to “retire” from my career as a organizational consultant, which was expedited by the pandemic. Now I make my writing my priority.
