Cyndee received a BS in Math Education from Northwestern University and a MS in curriculum development from DePaul University.
She worked as a high school mathematics teacher in the inner city of Chicago. She co-wrote and edited several mathematics textbooks for several publishers. She was an IT consultant, writing training materials, conducting corporate training and testing computer systems.
In 2008, Cyndee decided to work with her mother who was 92 years old and write a book based on the letters that her mother sent home to her family while she served as a WAC stationed in Europe during WWII. “Mollie’s War” published by McFarland Publishers is the result of this endeavor.
