Georgia Gale (Street Articles Author)

Hi. My name is Georgia Gale. I live in the state of Tennessee. I am just starting to discover how wonderful the internet is for making friends and reaching out to people.

Most of my career has been in communications. I worked at a local television station as a program director for several years and then a cable company. Watching movies is one of my favorite pastimes.

I am an animal lover and I have several pets. Most of my pets were rescued as strays.

Fitness and health are my interests, too, along with how-to books and good fiction.
