After graduating from Capuchino, I worked at LivingstonÕs Department Store in the Bridal Department as a Buyer, Fashion Coordinator and Designer. I married in 1964 and moved to Arizona in 1967. I raised two children on my own. As a single parent, I went to school and became a registered nurse for 30 years and then went back to school at age 50 and got my legal assisting certificate (33 semester hours). Ten years later, I went to the University of California and Pepperdine University to get various certificates in dispute resolution. I am now known as a peacemaker/mediator.
Also at age 50. I took all of the courses at the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving. I lapped the Phoenix International Raceway (the worldÕs tightest oval) and I kept up with the pack, which was a great achievement. Shortly after that, I got a job as an aquatics instructor for the Arthritis Foundation. I never thought I would get a job in a swimsuit.
I fell recently and broke a bunch of bones. And I am now working on humility.
