Harriet Tramer has worked as both a journalist and a (college) instructor. And although the links between these two professions might not be immediately obvious Ms. Tramer has learned that they have much in common: They both demand highly-developed communication skills. People in these two lines of work must not only learn to express themselves well (either verbally or through written words). They must also become adept at listening. 

In writing Rounding the Circle of Love: Growing Up As She Grows Old Ms. Tramer called into play everything she learned during her more than thirty years as a journalist/ teacher. Her experience guided her as she interviewed experts in various fields - the law, medicine, exercise therapy, enabling her to present technical information in an approachable manner.

Ms. Tramer graduated with an Bachelors degree from Chatham College in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. And she has Masters Degrees in Communication and Urban Studies from Cleveland State University. She has written for a variety of newspapers - "The Cleveland Press," "The Cleveland Plain Dealer," Crain's Cleveland Business - and has taught both at Cleveland State University and the New School (in New York City).
