Thea Iberall

As the playwright of We Did It For You! Women’s Journey Through History, Dr. Thea Iberall did the extensive research needed to develop a script that synthesizes the various historical catalysts for women’s rights through history.

Her climate fiction novel The Swallow and the Nightingale reminds us that the visions of Gandhi, religious mysticism, and Native Americans are a more sustainable solution than the patriarchal system under which we live.

Iberall has taught at RPI Hartford and USC, and has a Ph.D. from UMass. She is an inductee into the International Educators Hall of Fame.

Sue Katz

Sue Katz’s business card identifies her as a “wordsmith and rebel.” Her books, short stories, and  journalism have been published on the three continents where she has lived and worked, first as a martial arts master, then promoting transnational volunteering, and most recently, teaching fitness and dance to seniors and elders.

She has taught a plethora of writing courses over decades. Her books include Lillian’s Last Affair (six short stories about the love lives of older people) and Lillian in Love (unique novel about a romance between two old women in senior housing).

Carolyn McDonald

I have a personal, daily Qi-Gong practice that I do at home. I began Qi-Gong as a way of
self help for chronic pain.

Dr. Ming Wu is the master I've worked with for several years. From him, I have received
two certifications. One builds on the other - assistant instructor, instructor.

I participate in a weekly class with Dr. Wu that is offered through the Steinberg Wellness
Center, Concord, MA.

I teach Qi-Gong twice a week at: Stow Council on Aging and Steinberg Wellness Center,
Concord, MA.

I have a background in education and have worked in public schools. Later I worked in
corporate settings as a management trainer.
