About Me

 

I worked 7 years as a medical librarian at Georgetown Univ. Would you like to learn about about DNA & protein databases?? Here is my genetics webliography that I worked on during my 7 years in the field. Now I work at a law library at Catholic University, managing their computers and web site.

 

I love to write, and back in 90's I had a short story published in the Washington Post. It was a funny story about a Web treasure hunt that we did for the medical students at Georgetown. But the best thing I have written is a story about my dad (below), who was a WW II vet.

 

In 2004, I got a story published in the Op-Ed page of the Allentown Morning Call. It was about my 91 year old neighbor, Frank, who lived an amazing life. I enjoyed listening to him talking about NYC in the 1920's and what life was like growing up during the Depression.

 

While I have lived in DC since 1991, I have moved away twice: once in the late 90's to spend a few months with my ailing dad, and again from 2003-2005 when I worked in Allentown PA. So I can not seem to escape DC no matter how hard I try.

 

I play basketball every Sunday, with a great group of friends. We have been playing together for over 10 years, here is a map to our court.

 

Here are some panoramic views I took with my camera.
