Reflections of a Reluctant First Mate - How “Go with God” Takes on a Whole New Meaning as One Surrenders to the Dilemmas of Sailing...

After 35+ years of teaching with the School District of Philadelphia and many years of graduate school and post-graduate studies in Education, Anne retired and initiated her life as a chaplain, participating in Clinical Pastoral Education at Jefferson Hospital for two years.
