Alfa is a writer of poetic thoughts. She holds degrees in English Literature as well as Radiologic Sciences. She’s held many jobs during her lifetime in the medical environment, most specifically Radiation Oncology.

From a wide-planked porch in Kentucky, Alfa is most likely indulging in ice tea while painting a furniture piece some fabulous shade of turquoise, or crafting something extraordinary out of vintage buttons and brooches.
