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.
