Phoebe Nelson Oshirak is the mother of four (all grown), grandmother, a registered nurse, an avid gardener (Monarch Way Station #1671), a creative cook, an animal lover (owner of Irish Wolfhounds and Norwich Terriers) and during the summer, I raise and release Monarch butterflies. I have a motorcycle license, have SCUBA dived to 200 feet on a single tank of air in a sink hole in Florida that had an alligator floating on top. Obviously, I lived to tell the tale.
