I grew up in Switzerland, lived in Israel for ten years, and came to the United States in 1985. I was a counselor and therapist for close to twenty years before becoming an attorney. I am the mother of three grown children and the grandmother of four. My husband and I moved to Albuquerque in 2014 to be close to our grandkids and I could not be happier with the decision to make New Mexico our home. I was diagnosed with uterine cancer in 2016. Since undergoing a complete hysterectomy, chemotherapy and radiation, I have been cancer free. I retired from New Mexico Legal Aid in January of 2020, hoping to travel and spend time with family and friends. Courtesy of the Coronavirus pandemic, I am currently providing "grandma school" for two of my grandkids and have embarked on my third career - being a health and life coach.
