I am originally from Youngstown. I currently live in the Toledo area. My greatest life achievement is raising two successful children. I am a proud step mother of 2, and grandmother of 6. My husband is my best friend and partner in life’s journey.

My professional achievements consist of a BS in Secondary Mathematics Education with a Master in Secondary Educational Technology. I taught high school mathematics at Warren G Harding In Warren, Ohio. In 2015 I retired after 25 wonderful years.

I currently enjoy managing my household, traveling, spending time with family, reading,  gardening, indoors and out, exercising, and participating in garden club.
