Biographical Info

I am a retired high school teacher. After retiring, I became ordained and licensed and have pronounced over 800 couples married. Approximately a year ago I became the director for a non-profit 501 C (3) organization called Special Spaces. I create dream bedrooms for children with life threatening illnesses. The focus is on children with cancer, brain tumors, organ transplants and life threatening heart conditions. Our goal is to transform their bedroom into a place that only the child can dream or imagine. We hope to create a special space where the child can heal, recover, and find peace.
