While on vacation I will enjoy the local cuisine, learn the city streets and go on a few adventures. Even so, New York City is never far from my heart. Because it is not just one thing.
I love to travel, try new foods (both simple and "exotic"), ingest caffeine, and watch political news coverage. Im a big pop culture junkie who isnt afraid to say she loves "In Touch" Magazine! A social marketing expert and psychologist by training who works in the public health field trying to bring a little common sense to it all.
All the world is my television and I like to provide commentary on it.
I am going to start off with an admission. I don’t play poker with any frequency. It’s more like a leap year event. I do poker slot machines and once on over $700 on a few quarters. That sure felt good. But I’m not here to write about […]
I feel like I may have said this before. I feel like I have written a 1,001 variations on this theme. I feel like I should really adhere to this sound advice. Look, try the best that you can to surround yourself with people who push you to […]

The Covid Pandemic has been a tipping point for us all. It has tipped us into rocky waves and into seering doubts of self-reflection. It has turned the workforce and the workplace upside down. Where we go from here is anyone’s guess. At the beggining of the pandemic, […]
I love chorizo. I add it on to as many dishes as I can. Yummy. Tasty. Filling. Spicy. Fun. Yes, fun! At least, fun for a silly French scientist that too many people on social media took seriously. We’re always in search for a “wow” factor. Sometimes scientists […]
