We have lived in Boston for quite awhile but are both originally from New York. Bill teaches community psychology at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, and I direct the Boston School of Herbal Studies. I love to teach about the healing actions of plants and do a number of plant walks during the spring and summer around the Boston area. Bill is involved in projects to support healthy communities. As graduate students, we lived in Palo Alto and have loved the San Francisco area since that time. I love to cook, and we both enjoy good food.
