Raised in small Western Pennsylvania town with a population of about 5,000.
Attended Allegheny College, West Virginia University, Computer Science Institute.
Worked for Eastern Airlines as a computer programmer/analyst for 16 years, initially programming on a 4K IBM 1401 that took up half a hangar and required I drive across the runway at Miami International Airport to test programs when just a 21-year-old trainee.
Moved to Islamorada in 1980 with husband, Jay, and two young boys, thrilled to be back to life in a small town where individuals can make a difference.
Owned a real estate company, loved meeting people from all walks of life and varied locations, helping them make life-changing decisions.
Got involved in the community, with youth activities and the schools, community organizations and local government issues.
