I was born and raised in Pueblo, Colorado, and educated at Case Western Reserve University and the University of Oklahoma. After graduate school, I spent three years as a Navy clinical psychologist, with a year in Vietnam (July 1967 – July 1968. Since that time, I have worked as a school psychologist and licensed mental health counselor in the USA and overseas, until my retirement in 2006.
