Owner, Butterfly Woman Publishing, Inc.



Adult life included working in the corporate arena in North America, Latin America and following butterflies. 2012 I retired as executive director of Happy Tonics, Inc., an Environmental Education Organization and Public Charity, northwest Wisconsin USA. Author of two children's teaching books, "My Name is Butterfly" and "The Monarch Butterfly Coloring Book." Books available on Amazon.

My time is devoted now to public speaking on behalf of pollinators, especially monarch butterfly. At present, I am writing a college level and adult Field Guide for Butterfly Habitats and implementing a Wild Butterfly Habitat on private land. I am continuing my research, writing and nature photography in Fitchburg, MA, USA.

My articles on environmental issues are numerous in magazines and literary journals.
