Voici comment elle se présentait :

I was born into an immigrant family in Greensboro, NC in 1942. I am the middle child and I have an older brother and a younger brother. All of my formal education took place in Pennsylvania, where I entered the Assumption (1960) in Philadelphia immediately after highschool. I did graduate studies in sociology and education and obtained my MSW (Masters in Social Work) from the University of Pennsylvania.
I worked as a teacher both in our Assumption schools and parochial schools until 1971, when I went to the Province of West Africa until 1987 with 5 years (1976-1980) for studies in the States. After returning to the States in 1987, I started working in the field of mental health and substance abuse as a therapist. I continue to work in that field with the largely immigrant population on the US-Mexican Border in Chaparral, NM.
I served on the general council from 1994 – 2000.
