    SARASOTA, FL, August 01, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to present Dr. Wish with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. An accomplished listee, Dr. Wish celebrates many years' experience in her professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes she has accrued in her field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value.

With nearly four decades of professional experience, Dr. Wish has found success as the vice president of Gulfcoast Healthstyle Corporation since 1994.

She pioneered the connection between some women's work issues and childhood sexual abuse.

From that research, she also discovered that many non-abused women had specific issues in their love life. This finding prompted her to extend her research to non-abused women's intimate relationships for her next book, "Smart Relationships: How Successful Women Can Find True Love," published by New Horizons Press. She also turned these findings into a self-help cartoon book, "The Love Adventures of Almost Smart Cookie," that covers a year in Cookie's life as she makes the key love missteps, where each cartoon is based on the findings in Dr. Wish's research. She says that "when something bothers me that I cannot understand or fully help others, I do research so that people can trust my advice." And, finally, all these previous findings led to her next two books, "Training Your Love Intuition for Wise Relationship Choices" and "Training Your Love Intuition for Widowhood and Partner Loss." She discovered why your love intuition can be strong--but wrong! All her research is based on more than 2,500 participants.

Dr. Wish began her career as a therapist and supervisor at Cumberland Mental Health Services in Chambersburg and Waynesboro, PA, from 1979-1980. She also served as the Head of Social Work and Family for the Linwood School in Ellicott City, MD, from 1980 to 1981.
