PERSONAL PHILOSOPHY  (Who I am.)                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

"People tend to regret what they haven't done rather than what they have they have."    Life should be lived to the fullest and with no regrets. Life-long learning insures vitality as well as mental health.    

I have an interest in the stock market, contemplate films  and watch movies.  I study longevity as it relates to health and calculated risk assessment.  As a daughter and a mother, I understand the demands of everyday life."
