I HAVE NO DOUBT THERE ARE ANGELS ON EARTH. HERE IS ONE EXAMPLE. I AMD UNDERGOING A VERY INVASIVE CHEMO WHICH INVOLVES 14 SHOTS IN THE STOMACH OVER A 7 DAY PERIOD EVERY MONT. THE NURSES ARE FANTASTIC AND THERE IS ONE IN PARTICULAR THAT HAS TAKEN ME UNDER HER WING. I ASKED HER ONE DAY HOW SHE DOES THIS JOB. I COMMENTED THAT SHE MUST LOSE PEOPLE WHICH WOULD BE SO HARD. HER ANSWER WAS " I HAVE BEEN HERE 18 YEARS AND HAVE TREATED SOME OF THE PATIENTS THAT ENTIRE TIME. I ALSO GET TO MEET NICE PEOPLE LIKE YOU. WHAT IS THERE NOT TO LIKE" SHE IS TRULY AN ANGEL!!! ANGELS DO WALK THIS EARTH...HERE IS SITA WAITING PATIENTLY IN THE WAITING ROOM. SHE IS A FAVORITE AT THE CANCER CENTER!!!
I have a Bachelor's degree in English from Heidelberg University and Master's degree in Library Science from Emory University in Atlanta Georgia. I obtained another Master's degree in Rehabilitation Counseling and a Doctorate in Counseling and Human Services from Kent State University. I worked as a librarian for 19 years and with the Rehabilitation Services Commission with persons with disabilities for 11 years. I then worked in a private practice called Northeast Ohio Behavioral Health for 7 years. I found my true passion was teaching and writing. I have taught part time at Walsh University, Kent State University and am now at Stark State College. Presently I am teaching Deaf Culture and Introduction to Interpreting at Stark State and am immersed in several writing projects. I also visit schools, libraries, and other organizations with Sita educating people about assistance dogs. I love working at Stark State and being in an exciting place with phenomenal growth. I was overwhelmed when I was honored with the Excellence in Teaching Award in 2012! I will keep all of you posted on my writing activities in my blog.
