She was a bold sex therapist on TV and radio, a sharp-shooter, writer, humorist, educator, Holocaust survivor, and so much more. Dr. Ruth Westheimer is one of a kind and still working at the age of 94. See her story brought to life by playwright, Mark St. Germain, in Becoming Dr. Ruth, a solo show performed by Atlanta-based actor, Eileen Koteles.

Born in South Florida, Eileen has enjoyed a varied career in theater, dance, choreography for the stage, and voice work. She began her career when she was seven years old. Eileen holds a BFA in Theater from the University of Florida.she has received many accolades for her work both in theater and education.

She previously worked at the Mendez Foundation in Tampa, Florida as theater manager, creating, writing, directing, and performing musicals.She used this method fo teaching children living in poverty through a program entitled, Too Good for Drugs and Violence. Eileen says, Its imperative to support the arts as a platform for teaching life skills, problem solving, history, and tolerance. The arts provide us with that mirror to see ourselves so clearly, if we are willing to look.
