I was born and raised in Maryland. My husband of 48 years, Rob, and I, and our only child, Eric, moved to Florida in 1992. I began my teaching career in Maryland more than 35 years ago. Over the past three decades, I have primarily focused on preschool education and currently serve as a substitute and aftercare teacher at Gracie’s. I spend my free time with my grandson Easton (3), a student at Gracie’s, and working on Eric’s campaign for Sheriff. My husband Rob (67) is an avid golfer and my best friend. My daughter-in-law Rachel is a nurse at Cleveland Clinic Indian River.
