I am a Registered Nurse, recently retired after 35 years from the local state psychiatric center where, for the last six years, I was the Director of Operations for the hospital. My early/middle years were spent in the psychiatric emergency room where I had some great experiences and lots of wild stories. I was involved in several research projects and co authored eight papers and one chapter in a psych text book for residents. I am an MFU first cousin, and an Illya fan. Married (this time) for twenty eight years, and have a twenty three year old son who is a paramedic student. My other child is a hairy canine kid named Tanner, who is a cross between a griffon and a briard.
