Raised in Brooklyn during the 1940's and 50's, and now retired, I was educated at Brooklyn College and NYU, graduating with a degree in occupational therapy at age 20, returning to complete my PhD in OT at age 50. My areas of practice include aging, developmental disabilities, psychiatric practice and home health. I developed a private practice under the title of Geri-Rehab, Inc., dba Developmental Re/habilitation Services, contacting with schools and nursing homes throughout central NJ, then moving on to teaching, rising to professor and program director at Seton Hall University. I have written five OT texts and write a regular column on therapeutic activities in Advance for Occupational Therapy Practitioners since 1994.
My most recent book, Brooklyn Roots: A tale of pickles and egg creams, stems from an article I wrote on writing memoirs, morphing into a book. Personal reviews I received on the book have been requesting (sometimes demanding) that I continue the story, which I have begun to do. I write between my chores on our farm in western NJ, where my husband and I raise chickens for their eggs, beef, peacocks, dogs, cats, and what ever else comes to live here.
