Born and raised in Seattle, Washington – the Emerald State (as in green…lots of it…rain, rain and rain!). Moved to Anchorage, Alaska, in 1966 to work on the Wally Hickel for Governor Campaign. Back then political campaigns were very grass roots and “hands-on” – we doorbelled the state to victory. Moved to San Diego in 1969 and have been working in the “Biz” since then.

It all started in 1973 when I first published Senior World, the first lifestyle publication of its kind, exclusively targeted to seniors. In 1977, SPMG was born and I am proud to say that we have since provided nearly every localized boomer and senior targeted publication across the country with national sales representation. In 2011 SPMG decided to get back to our roots and publish Spot55.com with one goal in mind: To provide mature adults with news and tips that positively enhance their lifestyle.

I’m into gardening, love my roses and vegetable garden, watching the birds that come to our feeders, and all the canyon animals that pay visits. Of course I love the adventure of travel and for my big birthday this year, I am planning a trip to Peru and the Galapagos Islands. One of my life highlights was climbing Mt. Fuji in support of The Breast Cancer Fund. I also like to kayak, hike, walk the beach, and spend time at the beach house on Vashon Island, fish, read, and visit with great friends. Volunteer and charitable causes are important to me – primarily environmental commitments and on a local level supporting The Street of Dreams, a non-profit that works with at risk youth.

Life is a grand adventure and I am truly blessed!

I’d like to be the first to welcome you to our community and, if you are anything like me, I believe you will enjoy what we have to say here at Spot 55.com. Join us!
