I am a parent of two grown children, both unschooled rather than attending high school, and have lived in Los Angeles since 1978, after receiving a degree in Communications from the University of Michigan in my home town of Ann Arbor Michigan. I also have a degree in Computer Science from California State University Los Angeles, and have worked for the past 20 years as an information systems analyst. I am a longtime feminist and member of the National Organization for Women, serving on the Los Angeles NOW Chapter Board from 1982 to 1988, and working as a paid organizer for NOW during those years. I have been a member of the Sepulveda Unitarian-Universalist Society for the past 17 years, serving as Board President from 1994 to 1996, and currently volunteering as a youth adviser and co-chair of the Religious Education Committee. I am also a member of the Alternative Education Resource Organization (AERO) as an advocate for educational alternatives and unschooling in particular. On behalf of this effort, I bring skill and experience in political organizing, cooperative leadership and group facilitation, information systems and information content management, technical writing, and as a youth adviser.
