Hi there! This page is about me, and my views and observations about being transgender. My goal here is to share some of the things I have experienced and what I have learned.
Some basic stuff about me: I’m 59 years old and started to actively transition in the fall of 2008. I have been living fulltime in the female role since May 5th, 2010. I first came to a Pathways (then CDM) meeting in December 2008. I was elected secretary of the group at the September 2009 meeting (not a great accomplishment since I ran unopposed) and served in that capacity for 2 years. In addition to being group secretary, I was, up until July 2012, also responsible for the Pathways website which, if you are reading this, I assume you have discovered. 🙂 In June, 2012 I joined the Board of Trustees of the Pride Center of New Jersey, the second transwoman to be on the board. I have spoken on planning a succesful transition at First Event (in Peabody, MA) in 2011 and 2012 and in September, 2012 I will be speaking at the Southern Comfort Conference in Atlanta.
I have 2 children, a son and a daughter, both of whom are the center of my life. To find out more, click on one of the links to the right and read some of my posts.
I welcome any comments or observations you would like to add. Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you at a Pathways meeting soon!
