I graduated from UCLA with a degree in Psychology and went on to receive my Ph.D. So naturally I love all things UCLA and root for all Los Angeles teams...(ok not the Clippers). My biggest passion and my favorite team in professional sports is the Los Angeles Lakers! I have been an avid fan since I was a kid when they won it all in 1972! Those Magic years in the 80's will forever be etched in my memory! I am a nationally published author (over 100 articles) and I lecture throughout the United States! Did I say I LOVE sports?! I was a national champion swimmer and have enjoyed coaching my kids in soccer and baseball!
