I'm a newcomer to Connecticut, via Pennsylvania and Western New York (WNY). I live in the north end of town, and am enjoying all the wonderful things Middletown has to offer. My back story is complicated, but let's just say that I built a successful medical practice and raised 2 children by myself back in PA. After moving to WNY, all was lost through a series of tragic financial disasters and illness. After my twins established themselves in college and I emerged from a terrible depression, I landed here. I've written a book to help and encourage others, and want to share my story and knowledge of hope and change. I haven't been here long, but find it a magical place of acceptance, support and community. I'm really glad to be here. I love birds, music and reading, and especially the Russell Library!
