I was born in Brooklyn, NY and lived on Long Island until I moved to Florida in 1996. My early career included work with domestic and international airlines. My husband, Gilbert and 2 children, Erich and Danielle, took advantage of the benefits and travelled often, visiting all but 2 continents. I eventually settled down and enjoyed a career in the Service/Marketing at IBM on Long Island, New York City and Franklin Lakes, New Jersey. A challenge introduced me to my second career as a flight attendant and I enjoyed that hectic and chaotic life for 6 years.
I currently volunteer as a Guardian ad Litem. First in New York then in Hernando County, Florida and in October 2023, will celebrate 30 years in the organization. I have also volunteered as a mentor in the Take Stock in Children and College Reach Out Programs (CROP) sponsored by Pasco-Hernando State College.
