Barbara Teetor Waite grew up in Fort Wayne, Indiana playing all the major sports from season to season in her back yard and neighborhood. She was fortunate to live in a city offering a youth baseball league initially organized to feed the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, which gave her the opportunity to play competitive baseball. Summer camp broadened her sport knowledge and skills. United States Tennis Association tournaments challenged her to compete in tennis. She pursued athletics, competitive flying, and a general studies curriculum at The University of Arizona. She earned a master’s and doctorate in sport psychology at The University of Virginia. As a visiting assistant professor, she directed the Sport Psychology Program at The University of Iowa. She coached tennis and softball, taught physical education, and directed the staff/faculty wellness program at Grinnell College. Barbara continues to pursue writing, music, and the “silent” sports of hiking, biking, paddling, and sailing. She credits her family for instilling her life-long love of learning. Her writing can be found on line, in bookstores, and at frendshippublications.com.
