CV
Structural geology and tectonics led to mineralogy. Collecting began 1993. Field collector from 1993 to 2009 with John Fodi, my husband.

Following his death in 2009 I have been consolidating the original specimen collection and have begun a new one.

Member of the Walker Mineralogical Club, the Canadian Micro Mineral Assoc. and the Kawartha Rock & Fossil Club. Past newsletter editor for the first two organizations.

Currently volunteer at the Ontario Science Centre providing hands-on experimentation and information about rocks and minerals.

Most recently participated in the Joint Mineralogical Societies of Australasia Annual Seminar in Perth which was hosted by the Mineralogical Society of Western Australia.

This included a field trip to the Goldfields-Esperance region of Western Australia which not only added several new species to the collection, including trilithionite and eucryptite from the Londonderry Li deposit, but was an adventure in itself. More on this later.

The entire seminar program was a rewarding experience and I would strongly recommend any mineral collector who visits Australia to try and incorporate one of these annual seminars into their plans. In 2013 this is being hosted by the Mineralogical Society of New South Wales.

FOCUS
Interested in minerals, regardless of size, with a penchant for pseudomorphs, zeolites, and good association specimens for a given locality.
Large collection of specimens from the LafargeDundas, Flamboro and Lincoln Quarries in Ontario.
Extensive collection of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland specimens.
Predominately self-collected Poudrette Quarry, Mont Saint-Hilaire, Quebec, collection. Recent addition of self collected specimens from several localities in the Gatineau and L'Estrie regions as well as some new material from the Gaspésie.

Participate in the Kawartha Club Show (see www.kawartharockandfossilclub.com) and the Bancroft Club Show which takes place the Sunday before the Gemboree.
Can be found at the Rochester Mineralogical Symposium, Canadian Micro Mineral Conference, the East Coast Gem, Mineral & Fossil Show, West Springfield, MA and sundry other events during the year.
Hope to start uploading pictures in about 2 weeks time of localities and specimens.
