Born in Northern Alberta in Canada, Irene's career took her from career counseling, to business ownership, to working in management for a police force, to spiritual counseling, to teaching at a college, to retreat/seminar/workshop design and facilitation to her most recent - owning/managing Reader Views. She obtained her B.S. in psychology at St. Edward's University in Austin, TX and her M. A. in psychology from Regis University in Denver, CO.
After retiring in 2003 Irene authored an award winning memoir, The Sitting Swing, which was published in October 2005. Having a hard time getting reviews for her book, she started Reader Views on a whim. Within a month it exploded to a full time business. So much for retirement! Irene's hobbies include genealogy and reading. Irene lives with her husband, Robert, near Barton Creek in Austin, Texas - the best of two worlds - she has the city out the front door and the country out the back door. They are parents of two children, Juanita and Daryn, as well as in-laws of Christine, and grandparents to Kyle, and his siblings Kaitlyn and Keifer.
