I was born in a Farrell, a small town in western PA on November 11, 1944. Raised there with a sister and brother and attended the local high school. After high school I went to X-Ray school but after a year I decided it was not for me. I worked at a local store for a few years until I met my husband. After he finished college, we married and soon after moved to southern California specifically Huntington Beach. I am the proud mother of two children, Christine and Jason, and three grandchildren. In my 30’s, I decided to go to college. I received a degree in Marine Science. Unfortunately, during this time, my husband developed MS. After graduation, the job offers I received had me being gone for months at a time. So I went back to school and received another degree. This time in Travel. Unfortunately, my husband passed away at 55. A new chapter in my life had me traveling around the world. I have been in Machu Picchu and seen the sun rise, Spent the night in the Grand Pyramid, climbed the Great Wall and had a private audience with the Dahli Lama (picture to prove it). After I officially retired, I began another new chapter. Volunteering. I still travel, but love the volunteering I do. I have been with the OC chapter of the Red Cross, volunteered at Yosemite for a couple months during the summer and different positions here at Four Seasons. I am looking forward to this new phase I am entering.
