After week upon week of business travel for a non-profit organization, I went on a road/field trip of sorts to upstate New York in search of paranormal activity. When you work in the non-profit Community Based Organization (CBO) world, paranormal activity is actually the new normal. Seriously. Meanwhile, […]
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.
Carousels of meetings that go on and on everyday, day after day. That’s what everyday work life feels like in the 21st century. On average, I have about five meetings a day, with some days going up to 10 meetings. There have been times when I have been […]
Let me just state I have already had three venti-sized skinny vanilla lattes and it is only 11:30am. This morning has been one of those physically rough ones. Woke up early, ahead of my two-day long meeting, to work out. I had even put on my life is […]
Because I work in the public health field, I spend a lot of time in Atlanta due to the fact that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is located there. I go for funders meetings; summits, consultations where I am ostensibly the expert and for national […]

Mine is Brooke Miller of Anaheim, California, who holds the patent on that underappreciated wonder of technology and social cohesion which we colloquially refer to as “the pooper-scooper” i.e. a device for picking up animal feces (particularly urban dogs, pampered creatures that they […]
I woke up to a chill in the air this morning. It’s hard to believe that 11 years have passed since that fateful day where some of us, myself included, became a little less naïve in terms of world politics. I don’t believe there is anyone who lived […]
On an episode of CSI NY (Crime Scene Investigation), this past season, there was a murdered male whose body parts were left scattered throughout the four corners of Hell’s Kitchen (Episode: Sláinte). The investigators brought the torso back to the medical examiner’s office; where the ME stated […]
My life has become a non-stop carousel of airplanes, luggage and hotels. Work, work and more work through countless meetings in a seemingly endless rotation of cities and states. Some places are easier to travel to than others and some places are downright difficult emotionally, physically and spiritually. […]
I love road trips. I have gone cross-country four times now from New York to California. Usually I have taken Interstate 80.I have had a chance to see parts of the United States that perhaps not many New Yorkers have seen. As a matter of fact, and I […]
When I first went off to boarding school at age 14, shared bathrooms was such an odd, culturally jarring experience. Taking shower in a shared stall was something that ran counter to the idea of Puerto Rican privacy. But I got used to it. Thus, by college shared […]
