My eighth grade year I recieved the English Student of the Year Award for writing a creative writing paper on the life of a toothpick.  This is where the seed was planted for me to be a writer.

Summer of my Senior year and following High School I worked as a steno typist, and continued with that company for nine years in the secretary/receptionist/switchboard operator/mail clerk fields.  I later added light bookkeeping to my list of skills.

At age twenty one I travelled for the first time to Rome, Italy and Israel. Later, I lived in Guam three years and Germany for one year.  I have travel extensively since and love to travel.

In my forties I returned to school full time and graduated Magna cum Laude with a Bachelor's Degree of Science in Elementary Education. For ten years I taught either first grade or Special Education.

My latest adventure was four and one half years as a manager of a Antique/Flea Market where my favorite thing was researching unusual or antiques items. This is where I began blogging. Blogging about those usual items and antiques.

I have had three poems published from 1999 to 2014.
