What’s to know about me?
I believe in living our lives to the fullest. I believe everyone has something valuable to share in this world. I feel we all have value and worth, no one is any better or worse than anyone else. We all have a purpose in this world, and by motivating and inspiring others, we can bring out eachother’s best!
I have a very broad educational background. I took Honors courses in Highschool, and was in my Highschool’s Honor Society. I am a Charter Member of Phi Theta Kappa, Alpha Nu Omega Honor Society at Harrisburg Area Community College during which I was their first Public Relations Officer.
The goal of Phi Theta Kappa is to ‘give back’ to the community, to volunteer wherever we feel our talents are best suited. It is a wonderful society!
I have an interesting life background, filled with what you might feel were dysfunctional challenges, that I now see as GIFTS! I saw, at age 49, the gift of my life occurrences, which brought me to where I am, today! I am in total appreciation of life, living in awe of it all!
I am grateful for the challenges I’ve faced which have made me into the strong, independent, compassionate, confident, self-assertive woman I am today.
I am grateful for my talents, know my value/worth and choose to ‘give back’ to the community, when opportunities arise!
I have an Associates in Specialized Technology Degree – Interior Design from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, PA, graduating in 1979.
I attended H.A.C.C. for 5 years, evening, part-time from 1985-1990, studying Integrated Information Systems Management. I also took courses in the area of Mainframe development.
I have taken Ballroom/Latin/Swing dancing, which was great fun!
I do a lot of self-study, being a ‘Jane of All Trades’ ;o) I have done brick laying for a patio, minor electric work and plumbing on homes I have owned. I love gardening and landscaping. I’ve become quite a business woman, having bought, sold and profited on 5 homes! Oh, and I have a cosmetology license! ;o)
I am learning how to say “Hello, How Are You, Thank You and Good Bye” in as many languages as possible – but, it has to be from individuals I meet when I’m out and about. It’s more fun that way! I never thought I could learn so many foreign languages, but I am, and I’m making a lot of new friends in the process! It’s my way of saying, ‘you’ve come to this country and know your language as well as mine, I can at least make the effort to be cordial in your language! Besides, my grandparents traveled here from Hungary at age 19, I admire them greatly for their courage!
I discovered my unique, torch style, singing voice when I had the opportunity to play the part of ‘Sonia’ in GODSPELL at Unity Church, Mechanicsburg back in the late 1990s. I performed as an amateur torch singer at Unity Church of Mechanicsburg’s monthly coffee house, on two occassions. I’ve also done ‘RAP’ peformances to advertise events, at Unity Church and on my voice mail messages. Yes, this is quite interesting, I know! ;o)
I dabbled in local theatre getting my first role as: Claudia Procula in Cindy Dugolecki’s “Into the Dessert.”
Other roles were, “Helga” – German Maid/Housekeeper “Night Watch” – Oyster Mill Playhouse, and ‘Domina’ – my first solo singing role in “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” – Oyster Mill Playhouse. I also got to volunteer my services by working with Props, and Stage Managing for the play ‘Harvey” as well as doing the ‘Off’ Off-Stage voice of Mrs. Tewksberry, singing badly in that show!
In May 2008, I became a Certified Laughter Leader with the World Laughter Tour company of Columbus, OH.
I have many life experiences to share, many gifts to share, I love helping people, meeting people and just getting out with people and having fun! I love learning and trying new things! I love a challenge! ;o)
