Biography

I was fortunate enough to have studied botany with Dr. Marie Kuhnen at Montclair State College.  After graduating, I taught science, mostly biology, at Fort Lee High School.  Upon retirement, while I was editing science text books  for Prentice Hall Publishing,  I was appointed Chairperson of the Englewood Cliffs Shade Tree Commission. This position  I held for 15 years. During those 15 years I became an ISA Certified Arborist and as Chairperson, the Commission received the Green Community Achievement Award for 2011. In 2016 we received the 35 Year Tree City USA award.
