Breast Surgery Combined with Tummy Tuck and/or Liposuction by Charlotte Rhee, MD, F.A.C.S., P.C. Many of my patients come to me seeking help with the changes that can occur after childbirth. Following childbirth, a woman’s breast can grow to uncomfortable proportions or just the opposite can happen. A woman’s breast can actually lose volume and shrink, resulting in the breast appearing “deflated.” Additionally, a large number of women come to me seeking help with the post partum changes of their abdomen. During pregnancy the skin and abdominal wall muscles are stretched. Following childbirth, the abdomen can protrude and the skin can be loose or sag. In some cases, the abdominal muscles can be so weakened that the individual may look like she is still pregnant. Despite daily workouts including sit ups and crunches, a tummy tuck may be needed to restore these muscles.

ing breast reduction. Both groups of women want to have breasts that are proportional to their body size with the most natural result possible. In certain situations, a breast lift is also needed to tighten lax skin. The laxity can be the result of pregnancy or weight loss. When a breast lift is needed, I utilize the lollipop scar technique. A breast lift procedure is very similar to a breast reduction. The only difference is that with a breast reduction, breast tissue is removed.

Combined Breast/Tummy Tuck and Liposuction Procedures. Many of my patients who have breast surgery also have other procedures performed at the same time. This allows for one surgery and one recovery. The most common combined procedures performed by Dr. Rhee are breast surgery, whether it is a breast reduction or augmentation, combined with tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty. For those patients Breast Reduction Many of my patients who desire breast augmentation together with a tummy tuck, I am able to place Women with very large pendulous breasts may experience varied medical the breast implants through the tummy tuck incision, leaving the breasts without who have breast problems including back and neck pain.

Insistent Creativity e

When she turned 45, the need for a creative outlet became insistent in her life and a psychic told her to paint. So Ellen Hallie Schiff began her artistic journey by creating bold, color-splashed works of art. Her abstract process paintings have been exhibited at the Heckscher Museum of Art in Huntington, the Flatiron Project Space in Manhattan, on two television series, The Good Wife and The Good Fight, and she teaches abstract painting classes at the Artist’s Studio in East Norwich and The Art Guild in Manhasset. She is one of two female Long Island artists whose work will be on display to celebrate the reopening of the Art League of Long Island in Harvest: A Season of Gathering. The other artist is Constance Wain, who trained in art therapy at Pratt and works in dry lithography and mixed media. The New York Times called Wain’s work “daring and mind-stretching…capturing that vague area between art and life.” Wain has taught at the Art League and Hofstra University Graduate Creative Arts Department. Meet the artists at a free reception at 107 E. Deer Park Rd. in Dix Hills on Saturday, Sept. 25 from 1 p.m.-4 p.m. The free exhibit runs through Oct. 16. For more information visit artleagueli.org or call 631-462-5400.

Caring Choir None of them were professional singers: They were skilled front-line nurses from different towns and backgrounds working at New York’s largest health system, women and men leaning on each other for the strength they needed to help their patients survive the ravages of Covid-19. But they shared one wish: to sing on a national stage. When they met in person for the first time, “It was magic–our voices and personalities came together like we had known each other for years,” remembers Emanuel Remilus, a registered nurse at Cohen Children’s Medical Center. He is one of the singers in the 18-member Northwell Health Nurse Choir, which wowed the judges at the choir’s gold-

Then the punk-pop star became Joan Jett, turning out such chart-toppers as “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll” and “Crimson and Clover.” In 1980 she succeeded in her quest and became the first female artist to own and have direct control over an independent record company, featuring her band the Blackhearts—no mean feat in the traditionally

Describe the work you do and how you became involved in this work. I am a career coach and I host the weekly podcast A Certain Age, which shines an age-positive light on midlife and creates a space where women age out loud. My podcast shifts the dated narrative that aging makes you irrelevant. I talk to women ages 45-plus who are experts in career, beauty, family, money, purpose, wellness, fashion, and fun. They know about aging boldly and without apology and they are not slowing down– they are launching businesses in midlife, taking on creative adventures like publishing novels, starting podcasts, writing cookbooks, and pivoting careers. I tape the podcast at Digital Waterworx in Melville and produce the show from my home in Port Washington. What’s the best life advice you’ve been given? The way out is through. Life inevitably gives us speed bumps, challenges, turbulence. Keep on keeping on and you will get to the other side. And know that you can handle whatever comes your way. You didn’t make it to midlife without encountering turbulence and learning that resilience is a muscle. Use your midlife resilience to create what you want next. What’s the best business advice you’ve been given? Spend time on work you are good at and outsource the rest. You do not have to do everything yourself. Based on your area of specialty, what advice would you give to other women? Just start. Everyone has a project, a pivot, a side hustle, or a deep-seated passion that they have talked themselves out of. Start and know that you can learn by doing. And start publicly. Tell your friends, your family, and your coworkers what you are up to. This will help keep you accountable. Here’s mine: I plan to write and publish my first book in 2022.

Dr. Andrew Jacono, an NYC-based plastic surgeon, has captivated the eyes of hundreds of thousands of people around the globe with his fascinating before-and-after results, which he posts on his Instagram account. However, what has brought him global attention, has also become a cesspool for copycats and imposters, trying to exploit desperate patients looking to reduce the signs of aging. With social media ever so dominant as today, many people are hyper-focused on their looks, now more than ever. According to Dr. Andrew Jacono, “Not only has the uptick in demand for surgery been fueled by the current stay-home culture, but also by the fact that we have all had more time to look at ourselves-on Zoom, FaceTime, and in the mirror.” He suggests that it has become even worse with this pandemic keeping most people at home, noting, “we’ve seen our faces in ways that we haven’t before and have had more time to critique them.” Recently, Dr. Jacono performed his signature ‘minimal access deep-plane extended facelift,’ or ‘MADE facelift,’ on Sonja Morgan, an actress from ‘Real Housewives of New York City.’ Both of them posted the incredible before-and-after photos on their Instagram accounts. Dr. Jacono himself stated that the reason Morgan’s facelift was amazing is “because she has naturally strong facial bone structure, which acts as a beautiful scaffolding.” advertisement

Norma Kamali: ‘Invincible’ at 76

N

orma Kamali’s book I Am Invincible began as a gift to a friend on her 50th birthday. A group of women were having a party for her, and Kamali gave a small leather-bound Moleskine notebook with her “50 Tips on Turning 50.” The reaction amazed her. She received texts, emails, and follow-up calls from many of the guests asking her to make her “book” available to a wider audience. So she did. I Am Invincible (Abrams, Feb. 2021) offers inspiring advice for gliding boldly through each of life’s decades. At 76, Kamali looks—and acts— nearly half her age, and she credits that to aging with power: embracing a healthy lifestyle and looking forward to every milestone and the changes they bring. Part manifesto, part memoir, her book is informed by 50 years of twists and turns, triumphs and failures, while finding the courage and conviction to race after her dreams and never look back. A fashion legend known for her innovative design, such as the chic red maillot worn by Farrah Fawcett in the iconic 1976 poster and the oversized “sleeping bag” coat, Kamali brings that same verve to her book that she does her fashion—and her life. She recently spoke with Long Island Woman.

“Everybody needs to focus on movement every day.”

Tell me more about “aging with power.” Aging with power is a much different view about aging. I am looking at aging proactively, looking at the long game. You don’t think of aging with endings. You think of aging with new beginnings. You think of aging with potential. Also, you have to be equipped and take care of yourself—

10 • Long Island Woman • September 2021

sleep, diet and exercise have to be a very big part of the ammunition you use to age with power. It’s not going to happen without you deciding that this is really what you want to do. I decided at 75 that I did not have any desire to be in my 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s again. I did it. I went through the initiation of each decade. I survived each decade, and I have the benefit of all of this wisdom and experience, and this is the best place for me to be. I earned this place, and I feel like I can be a mentor, an advisor, and I can help, I can teach, and I can be productive in the world that I’ve been in for over 53 years. You mention sleep, diet and exercise. You call them the three pillars to aging with power. They’re very simple concepts, and yet many people find them so hard to conquer and control. They’re always presented in this very overwhelming way, like ‘Oh, I have to start exercising. I haven’t exercised in a while!’ Yet, exercise movement is very simple. Walking is a great exercise. And if you live in an apartment building, you can just try going up and down the stairs a couple of times and your heart will pop out of your chest. Everybody needs to focus on movement every day. As for food, everybody seems to have a complicated relationship with food, but women seem to have the biggest, most complicated relationship. Food is so connected to how we feel about ourselves, and the choice of what we put in our body must be equal to the kind of respect we have for our body. If we think of food in that way, food should be nourishing and make us beautiful, make us healthy, make us feel good about ourselves. To advertise: 516-505-0555 x1 • liwomanonline.com/advertise


And sleep is critically important for restoration—each night, taking each cell of your body, restoring it, and getting it ready for the next day. You can’t just catch up on Sunday. One of my favorite lines of your book talks about the importance of walking away—from a relationship or a difficult situation—when your integrity and selfesteem are being challenged. So many women don’t do that, probably because it’s so easy to stay. You’re so right. It’s so easy to stay and be uncomfortable than it is to say,’I think time’s up on this one. I need to walk away from it.’ It could be a relationship, it could be a job, it could be a situation that happens in the moment and you’re totally surprised. Are you going to allow yourself to be objectified or humiliated? Or are you going to walk away? People often choose to stay because of money or security or a number of things like that, but the fact is that you need your soul right. There are times where you have to take that chance because there could be another opportunity that you are not allowing or letting in because you’re stuck in an old situation. I think we’re all under the belief system that every relationship has to last forever. I don’t think so. We all grow, and we change. Maybe that job or opportunity you have is a great one, but you grew out of it and you’re in a dif“You don’t ferent place. Sometimes you can’t get that something think of aging else until you walk away from this one.

15 Tips for Better Sleep

F

or many, getting a solid night’s sleep is as elusive as winning the lottery. Getting too little sleep is so common that it’s become almost a badge of honor to get through each day with sleep deprivation. Even if you feel like you can function on little sleep, it’s actually debilitating, if not dangerous, to a person’s health and mental faculties. Not getting enough sleep increases the risk of obesity, memory impairment, illness, and even hallucinations or death. Sleep quality is also crucial for optimum brain function and recovery. Fortunately, there are many ways to train your body and mind to fall asleep more quickly and improve your sleep quality. Create a relaxing nighttime ritual. Starting a routine to wind down every night creates an association between nighttime habits and sleep, preparing your body to relax and fall asleep more quickly. Try drinking a soothing tea like chamomile. Or use aromatherapy with scents such as lavender that promote relaxation. Go to sleep and wake up at the same time every day. This gets your body into a regular sleep-wake pattern, which regulates your circadian rhythm and makes falling and staying asleep easier. It may be tempting to sleep in on the weekends to make up for lost sleep, but this may actually hurt you in the long term. Avoid alcohol at night. Though it may help you fall asleep, drinking alcohol before bed significantly reduces your sleep quality. Be careful with naps. A long afternoon nap can make it more difficult to fall asleep at night. So keep naps short and as early in the day as possible. Track your sleep. Different technologies are available to Avoid track your sleeping patterns, including restlessness, awake and sleep times, and even how long you’re in each part screens an of the sleep cycle. This can help you find how many hours hour before you individually need for optimal function. Practice meditation and mindfulness. Regularly practicbedtime. ing these can help calm your mind and body. Progressive

relaxation is one technique. Through it, you slowly focus on each part of your body, moving from head to feet, while releasing tension and consciously relaxing your muscles. Avoid screens an hour before bed. Looking at the bright light is stimulating. Likewise, so is much of the content on the screens. If you use screens at night, glasses are available to filter out the blue light to prevent eye strain. Use breathing techniques. One popular method to fall asleep is known as 4-7-8. First, breathe in through your nose for a count of four. Then hold your breath for 7, and exhale out your mouth for 8. Listen to soothing white noise, music, or podcasts. Many of these audio productions are designed to help put you to sleep. Stop drinking caffeine after midday. Caffeine is a stimulant, which can affect your mind and body hours after consumption. Make sure your room is dark for sleep and that you get natural light during the day. This regulates your circadian rhythm and provides external cues for your body. Exercise in the morning. Being physically active, especially early in the day, is associated with better sleep. Journal or keep paper by your bed. Do you have a hard time falling asleep because your mind is racing? Writing down your thoughts can help to keep them from swirling incessantly through your brain so you can relax. Use your bed and bedroom primarily for sleep. This creates a specific association, so your body and mind know it’s time to rest. Also, keep electronics out of the bedroom. Try a natural supplement. Melatonin, magnesium, and CBD are some of the options touted as supporting relaxation and sleep. Be sure to check with your doctor before taking any supplements to ensure you do so safely. If behavioral changes aren’t working, discuss your sleep concerns with your doctor. You may have an undiagnosed sleeping disorder that requires medical intervention. Depending on your doctor’s findings, medications and breathing treatments may help improve your sleep. l To advertise: 516-505-0555 x1 • liwomanonline.com/advertise

The Long Island Woman Interview

Laraine Newman

I w b g i

the orignal Saturday Night Live cast-member discusses her Life of Interesting Times

O

ctober 11, 1975: The debut of Saturday Night Live. The night that television changed forever and a new generation grabbed the reigns of comedy and satire and took it to the edges. Laraine Newman was a member of that enormously talented original cast (that aslo included Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, Jane Curtin, Garrett Morris and Gilda Radner) and was hand-picked by the show’s creator, Lorne Micheals. Despite all the acclaim and attention the show received, Newman was filled with self doubt and insecurity throughout her five years on the show. And as she explains in her very candid Audible audiobook, May You Live In Interesting Times, that self doubt and insecurity has lingered for years. After her years on Saturday Night Live Laraine made some errors in judgement regarding her career and had some spotty appearances in film and TV. She also continued to struggle with depression, insecurity and addiction. Her life took a postitive turn when she became a parent at age 39, found sobriety and redirected her career path. She’s been a successful voiceover actor and can be heard in dozens of TV and animated films (Shrek, Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc...). And yes, Laraine Newman has lived in interesting times and her memoir has the stories to prove it.

How did you get through the pandemic? How was it for you? To be perfectly honest, and much to my shame, this is how I live anyway. I love nothing more than staying home and binge-watching TV. So once it was government-sanctioned, I felt terrific. However, it did get to me after a while, but also I was writing my memoir. When you realized the memoir was going to be on Audible and not print, did you have to make any adjustments because it was a different medium? Yes, because there’s a different way to write for performance. It also gave

me an opportunity to think more about times in my life where I was dealing with what could be considered characters, and there was a lot of stuff in my life where people had dialect. I had to really work on the dialects that I needed to use. I needed to speak Swedish. I had to learn quite a bit of stuff, but it was really exciting and fun for me because that is the kind of work I love to do. You certainly lived in interesting times and had an interesting background. You had a grandfather who was a Jewish cowboy and a sheriff of a small town in Arizona where they were the only Jews. How did that come about? My grandfather was a cattle merchant but he did a lot of things. He came from Baltimore and they moved to Los Angeles. My dad was born in Los Angeles in 1916, and then they moved to Arizona, and that’s where my dad grew up with his sister. It was actually my dad’s mother whose brother was in the cattle merchant business, so my dad went into business with him. They did cattle drives, they had horses.… My dad had his own horse. He really did talk kind of like a cowboy, even though he was incredibly educated, and passed the bar in Arizona. When you were ages 13 to 15, you had scoliosis with a back brace and cystic acne. What was that like for you during your formative years? How did you get through that time? It was tough. I also hadn’t grown into my nose that was big to begin with. I was skinny too. And the brace... I had to sleep in it and wear it 23 hours a day. But it wasn’t like I’d gone from being a social butterfly to being confined to a brace. I was always a nerd. I was always an introvert. I got teased, but not a lot, and I just kind of took it in stride. It was like, ‘What more could happen to my appearance?’ The skin, the brace, the bad skin, the large nose.... what more? Early in your life, your mom gave you and your siblings a directive not to go into showbiz. You didn’t take her advice. Did you have a sense that destiny was calling?

by arIe nadBoY I followed my interests. I never really imagined that I would be a professional. I know that sounds kind of cavalier, but I really just followed my interests, and my interests were varied. You studied with Marcel Marceau in Paris. Could you talk a little bit about that experience, and how it impacted your work? I’d seen Marcel Marceau at Royce Hall, which is at UCLA, when I was 16, and I absolutely flipped. I’d never seen such an incredible art form and someone who was getting laughs with that art form. It enchanted me, and so I went backstage and I asked him if there was someone in L.A. I could study with. He gave me the name of someone who also taught me improv, so I was learning improv at the age of 16 also. When I graduated high school, it was a scary time for me because I had never applied for college. I didn’t want to go to college. I couldn’t stand the idea of more school. I had a therapist who gave me really practical advice, which was to write to the acting schools that I knew of–and I only knew of them in England–and get their brochures. I did, and I auditioned for all these schools and was rejected by all of them. Since I was already in England, so I went to Paris and asked Marceau if I could join his school, and he was happy to have me, which was great. I was one of the few students who really had mime technique when I got there. It really had no relevance to the work that I did on TV and in movies. It only really was an asset and a tool, and a wonderful tool, in improv. Because in improv you have to make up the situation, and in that situation there are things that make up that reality, objects, et cetera. You detail how you dealt with insecurity, self-doubt, and depression. When you found yourself on “Saturday Night Live,” which was a groundbreaking national TV show with a wealth of talent, did you feel some validation at the time? In the beginning we didn’t really know what the show was going to be. There was no reason to be that validated because we didn’t know if the show was even going to last. But I had worked with Lorne Michaels before, so there was something almost familial about the whole setup. We were all so young that it didn’t even feel like a professional project. It felt like something we were doing for ourselves. There are so many things that were great about it, and I realized over the course of time, that everybody had different talents, and nobody could do what the other one could do. We were really an ensemble, and a supportive ensemble, supportive of one another. But as time went on, it was a struggle for airtime. I was very inexperienced and very scared. I didn’t know how to get my characters on the show. It was a struggle until the writers started to see what I could do. They were creating things for me to do and I was able to do them. In that sense, it was nice to score in that way, to just kind of come through for them. But there were times when I felt like I wasn’t coming through for them, and that was what I was so insecure about. But did you get feedback from others that you weren’t coming through or was it your own insecurity? It was really coming from me. But I also personalized and internalized the fact that I didn’t get as much airtime as the other girls.

You said that it’s important to talk about envy and jealousy and insecurity and that you did envy Gilda and Jane. How did that impact you and how did it impact your relationship with them? It never impacted the relationship because they are good people. It really just impacted my sense of self-worth. When did you have an appreciation of the cultural impact of the show and how it had changed television, and your role in it? During the pandemic, I was binge-watching a lot of stuff. I watched a lot of Swedish shows. I remember seeing one show where they referred to parental units and another show where they talked about mass quantities, in the way that we used it. I realized that it’s become vernacular, and it’s even traveled to different countries. Also, I think one of the characters in one of the Swedish shows I was watching had a Bill Murray t-shirt on. When I hear those kinds of things, things that we did, in the vernacular, in the culture, it’s really thrilling. What’s your fondest memory from your years on “Saturday Night Live?” There’s not one, there’s a lot. Sketch comedy is so fun, and the relationships were wonderful also. There would be times when we would do material, we had no idea how it would be received. When you have a real personal and specific taste that was presented and then accepted, that was a sweet, sweet, feeling. When I did the Valley Girl and it’s scored so well, that was the same kind of thing where I’d always seen people like this, and the audience got it. It’s just a wonderful feeling. You had a drug addiction for a number of years and during the time you were doing the show. What impact did that have on your work during those years? I’m sure it had an impact on my attitude. I never performed high. Let me amend that. I performed once high, but once, after 105 shows. But chronic drug use makes you depressed, so I would kind of withdraw in situations where I probably should have been more proactive on my own behalf. I think that what my drug use did to me was make me kind of give up in a way and retreat. Which cast members were you closest with while doing the show? Gilda. I was friendly with the guys, but mostly Gilda. And of course, the girl writers, just because of proximity. You spend so much time with them, and we all liked each other, and nobody ganged up on anybody, which I think is amazing now. You were romantically linked with a few musicians, Warren Zevon, Mark Mothersbaugh (Devo), and Andrew Gold. What was the attraction to musicians? I don’t know. With Warren, I was a fan of his music before I met him. I didn’t know who Andrew was when I met him. He was just really funny, and the same thing with Mark. These guys are really funny and that’s a big attraction. They have a talent that I don’t have that seems almost magical to me. It’s the combination of those two things. Andrew Gold said that he wrote the song, “Never Let Her Slip Away” about you. So how did you slip away? He was going to move in with me in New York, and then we made arrangements. It was all set, then he kind of got cold feet, and so HE slipped away.

“I was very inexperienced and very scared. I didn’t know how to get my characters on the show. It was a struggle until the writers started to see what I could do.”


LaraIne neWman

The Long IsLand Woman InTervIeW A turning point in your life came when you had your first child at age 39. You said that you realized that it wasn’t all about you anymore, and you refocused your priorities. Was it more like a light bulb that suddenly went on, or was it a process to come to that realization? It’s definitely a process. I really threw myself into the role and the responsibility of parenting. I was dead set on not repeating the neglect that I got, so as a result, I was kind of a helicopter parent. But I loved it! Being a parent makes your life more pragmatic, your ego is not as invested in your work. In retrospect, I kind of appreciated the fact that this situation, which we all go through, for the most part, makes it so that your life is not about you –if you’re a good parent. You said that you pursued your interests with no game plan, and you made some career mistakes as a result. But you made one career move that really paid off very well later, and that was taking voice lessons. As a result you’ve had a successful career doing voiceovers and character voices. What inspired you to take those lessons? I had a manager who talked to me about it, and I was interested. I was kind of hanging out with people that worked in that profession. Tress MacNeille, who is a huge star in voiceover, was a Groundling. I Laraine knew what she could do, I was just with Gilda Radner so amazed by her talent. It was the perfect job for someone with kids, so my manager helped me get an agent. But I was only booking guest shots, I wasn’t nailing a series, so I took a class with Charlie Adler, who is also a big star in animation, and a great teacher. After I took that class, I started working and I never stopped to this day. I’m so grateful to him for that. What do you enjoy about this phase of your career? It’s much different than your previous career in front of the camera. I’ve realized that because I am an introvert, I am much more comfortable not being seen when I work. I mean, there are things I do, like when I go to Sketchfest in San Francisco that are stage shows. But it’s just a different form. It’s not like the scrutiny of a camera, it’s stage stuff, and that I’m comfortable doing. But for some reason, the scrutiny of a camera just started to get to me. I developed almost like a phobia, and even 16 • LONG ISLAND WOMAN • SEPTEMBER 2021

if I had the job, once I would hear ‘action,’ I would just get so freaked out. So the process of auditioning became traumatic for me, so I just stopped doing it and I’m so much happier. And it’s very steady. It has been. I’ve been lucky. I worked all through the pandemic, and I’m very fortunate. So among other things, you’re a co-founder of The Groundlings, an original cast member of Saturday Night Live, you have a successful career doing voiceovers, and a proud parent of two children, who are also in the entertainment industry. Do you feel now more secure and accomplished at this point in your life? I’m always striving. I think it’s just in my nature. I need a project. I need a goal. I need to set goals for myself, otherwise, I get depressed. That’s why I’ve written as much as I have and written performance pieces for the stage at The Groundlings, and so on. Because I’m happiest when I’m making something. I don’t have a big picture view of myself. I mean, if I were to sit back and take stock, those are great things. I’m really happy that I was fortunate enough to be a part of all that, but it’s always the next thing. There’s a difference between wanting to do more and beating yourself up for not doing enough. Yeah, I’ve matured past that, because I also understand the nature of how arbitrary the work is. There are so many people that are so much more talented than others that don’t get a shot, so a lot of it is luck. I know that. I have that perspective. It doesn’t mean that I don’t have moments of doubt, but for the most part I do realize that it’s very arbitrary. As you approach the next decade of your life, what is it that you look forward to? Well, losing that 40 pounds I gained in the pandemic. There’s a bunch of projects that I have. I’ve written a whole performance piece about going to Coachella with my kids. I absolutely love it, and I want to really hone that piece. I’ve also written a show about auditioning that I have performed, but it requires a lot more work. I’ve got work cut out for me that I can do myself, and just hope that the success I’ve been having in voiceover continues. You never know. ◆

“We were all so young that it didn’t even feel like a professional project. It felt like something we were doing for ourselves.“

From Horror to Helping: The Legacy of Arie Bucheister

E

arly on February 1, 2003, Beth and Arie Bucheister left home for their Bushwick, Brooklyn clothing store. By the time they would open the doors at Knickerbocker Boy’s & Men’s, their daughters would be safe in the first period at Oyster Bay High School. A child immigrant from Israel and son of Holocaust survivors, Arie developed a reputation as loyal, driven, and determined to make the world better. Young Arie adjusted well to his Rhode Island schools and even became captain of his high school hockey team. Then it was off to Boston University and an eventual doctorate in chemistry. Arie and Beth met at BU while she was studying speech pathology. After they married, Arie worked as a corporate industrial chemist for a few years. But he craved freedom, opportunity, and growth. “There wasn’t anything he couldn’t do,” Beth says, and so they offered to buy the Bushwick Avenue family clothing business from Beth’s parents. “Arie worked in the cramped office above the store while I worked with customers. In Brooklyn, 8th-grade graduation outfits were a really big deal.” Beth negotiated fashion compromises between parents and boys, while Arie “…managed buildings and he BUILT another building! A four-story building, six apartments, storefront under it. He literally took guys standing on the corner drinking their Bud-40s and said, Arie loved ‘We’re going to build this building.

Another decade passed. No one was ever arrested for Arie’s death. Thousands of dollars in reward money sat until 2016, when Beth created a legal charity as Arie’s legacy. Career Day, Inc. was born. Today in schools across Long Island, business leaders, hospital chiefs, security gurus, environmental company and other execs get real with students. They admit they didn’t always know what they wanted to do. They explain how they finally found some direction and then let their educations work to get them there. They also introduce students to careers they may not have considered. Says Beth, “We know what our parents do, but do we know aeronautics?” Career Day, Inc. is also equally focused on students who aren’t collegebound. “We don’t want students thinking the only way to success is applying to the same 12 colleges. They can still have real careers, not just ‘jobs.’ There’s a big push to get kids involved in manufacturing. They don’t know about robotics, advances in technology. These are real opportunities.” Beth has seen success. That 2005 recipient of the first Arie Bucheister Career Day, Inc. Scholarship was the son of a single parent. Today he’s a commercial airline pilot. But how did Beth transform her nightmare horror into helping? “I’m not strong. I’m resilient. You find your inner strength in your resilience.” She remembers the exact moment she discovered hers. She and their daughters were visiting the Holocaust Museum. “We were in the Reflection Room where quotes are etched into white marble. I saw Deuteronomy: ‘I call heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have set before you, life and death, blessing and curse. Choose life so that your descendants may live.’” I would salute Beth with my favorite quote, from psychiatrist, author and concentration camp survivor Dr. Viktor Frankel. “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms– to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” Career Day, Inc. is available to schools through: careerdayinc.org. l Carol Silva is a multi award-winning journalist who spent 33 years at the anchor desk of News 12 Long Island.
