Charlotte has long had interest in populations who depend upon a three-legged stool, starting while she cared for a parent with Alzheimer’s!  At this same time she was a teacher in a pilot program for young gifted children. Since then, she has written and published a book and articles, all with peer-reviewed publishers, had her own professional development business with two partners, been a gifted program administrator in a large school district, been president of her state professional organization, and become an advocate working with legislators in Washington state.  She has won local, state, and national awards for her work.

     Charlotte lives with her husband and assorted pets on a forested creek bank in the Cascade Mountain foothills near Battle Ground, WA.
