PROFILE (and Recent Photo, below):

After graduation from Seton Hill, I stayed in the Pittsburgh area teaching and counseling at South Fayette HS.  I received my Masters in counseling at Duquesne University in 1970.  I had first started a Masters in US History......stopped several credits short because I was encouraged by the superintendent to pursue a counseling degree.  Loved my time in the Pittsburgh area, working in a district quite similar to MPHS -- small, however, rural.  Coached basketball and softball and was the student council moderator.  A place where everyone did a little of everything.

After leaving South Fayette, I spent the next 20 years in a suburb of Cleveland in a High School doing teaching, administrative positions, coaching and counseling.  In 1988 I left Cleveland area for Baltimore where I pursued my Doctorate in Counseling Psychology.  After receiving my Ph.D. I worked in two separate psychiatric hospitals, the last hospital was with the Veterans Administration.  Those were privileged years for me working with our veterans.

Because I was going back to Cape Cod every weekend to care for my dad, I moved to Massachusetts in 1997, taking a position as a principal of an inner city school.  But, soon after I took the position, my dad passed away.  I stayed there until the school closed, and spend my last years prior to retirement working as Director of Counseling in a school in Fall River.  I was living at the Cape all of this time.

It's now September 2014, and I've just made a rather significant move.....from the east coast to the northwest.  I have been in Idaho for just about a month.  Sold everything to begin anew.  My brother is here six months of the year.  I am close to the rest of my family.  My new home is about 40 miles from Spokane.....and it's a quick trip to Oakland, CA, or Cambria, CA and even Los Angeles -- all locations of family.  Close enough to visit several times a year.  I am in a very beautiful and rural section of the Idaho.....up in the panhandle, surrounded by State and National Forest areas.  I can almost say that my front yard is Idaho and my backyard is Washington.   Canada and Montana are very close.

Visitors welcome !  There may be classmates out there who like to hike.....this is a great area to be doing that.  And my guest room provides comfort for weary feet, or just plain rest !

FYI, I still keep up with my family in Italy.  I lost my aunt 4 years ago.  Still very close with my cousins who live in the Mountain area of Northern Italy.  I spent 5 weeks in SanVito, Italy, the year after I retired.  It was a very good thing for all of us.

I love writing and optimistically will complete a book or two while I am here in the Northwest.  I'm in the midst of a children's book...possibly two...as well as a non-fiction book on generational women.  Who knows if they will get done.  I do like to finish things, however, so, most likely this will probably happen. 
Still do occasional consulting, as I still have a deep interest in working with people.

My new address is on Columbia Blvd in Blanchard, Idaho.  You can ask Dave Kay or Frank Kingsland for my contact information and address, and they will pass your request on to me.

My best to all of you, my fellow classmates.
Donna
