It is my privilege to be on the CBST Board of Directors for a second time (I served as an officer on the board many years ago). I received a BA from Goucher College, elected to the Phi Beta Kappa Society; an M.F.A. in Acting from University of Denver; and a JD from New York University School of Law. I have made my living as a union actor, a theatrical producer and an attorney practicing First Amendment and intellectual property law. I am a poet with two collections of poetry, both nominated for a Pushcart Prize. A third collection will be published this year. My husband Simon and I live in the West Village with our wheaten terrier Chelsea. We have two children, Mara and Noah, who became a Bar Mitzvah at CBST in 1998, and eight grandchildren.
