            1978-1989, MS

            "It is what is between your ears that makes your life happy or not."

            This was the most profound statement I had every heard and as my life evolved, I will testify that it is the most true and impacts my work every moment of every day. Adelphi's culture was easy and had chosen some of the best teachers-people_ I have ever encountered. Phoebe Lazarus-humanistic education- I drank it all in-Bouklas Bucks....School was fun, relevant and deeply helped me become introspective and shift my life for the better. I was in a terrible relationship but through mu studies and deep caring and all I was learning, I went for what was better, filled with integrity and loved myself out and away form what was destructive. Adelphi rocks and still love it to this day. After writing this I am feeling a deep sense of connection and thinking maybe I want to give back and work there. Hmmmm. Got my passion meter going!
