When Regina turned 50, she wrote a column on the 50 lessons life taught her. A life as an unwed mother. A life as a single parent for 18 years. A life searching for love and finally finding it at 40. A life interrupted by breast cancer at age 41. A life that reflects the ups and downs, twists and turns we all face.

Regina writes regularly for The Plain Dealer and for the Cleveland Jewish News.

Regina has a master’s degree in religious studies and a bachelor’s degree in journalism.
