I lived in Fair Lawn and graduated from FLHS and went to Rutgers University. I married my high school sweetheart, had 2 beautiful boys.


I worked for IBM for 10 years as a programmer and project manager, where I was promoted 2 times in the 1st 5 years. I felt that I wanted a job where I made a different in the world. & went back to school to be a teacher.  I became a third grade teacher for 12 years & I absolutely loved teaching.  I had good relationships with the children &their parents as well as the staff & my boss.  I felt like I was going to school every day, not to work., unfortunately I had to retire because I had a stroke.


I joined the Ridgewood Toast Masters where I served 2 terms as the treasurer and 1 as the President. Currently I am volunteering at Adler Aphasia Center.
