“Dori’s book, ‘One’s Own Self’ has been sold around the world and been displayed by many businesses across the globe. I am fortunate enough to have a signed copy and treasure her personal experience as translated through her book. One’s Own Self tells a story about overcoming adversity and learning to walk again, figuratively and literally. The story describes the highs and lows of making the decision to continue on one’s path. Dori’s acceptance of facing this challenge everyday continues to inspire and cheer others along their paths.
Besides being an author, she is a fabulous artist- painter, sculptor and more!”
