Wednesday, March 16, 2016
A writer, poet, and spiritual mentor, Dr. Ilene Cummings' career path has typically been one of innovation and risk-taking. At age 37, while raising five children, Ilene began her college career; she entered the work force at age 44 as the founding coordinator of a landmark human-development program for women. Her graduate degree is in human development, and she has a Doctor of Ministry in Spirituality and Work from the University of Creation Spirituality, founded by Matthew Fox. Now in her 80s, Ilene has integrated her life's work into a writing course on legacy called My Heirloom Memoirs.
