I attended Holy Family and DeSales Universities - concentration in management/marketing. My husband, Gerry, and I have been married for more than 30 years and we have two children - James and Lindsay - both are graduates of Palisades (2007 and 2011 respectively). James graduated from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University with a degree in mechanical engineering and Lindsay graduated from Castleton University in VT with a degree in health science and a minor in psychology - both are gainfully employed! We also have a granddaughter (my son's daughter), Gabby who lives with us, and I could not imagine my life without all of her antics! We have a dog that completes our home. Some of my interests, besides my family, include skiing, reading, yoga, camping, music, dancing and dining with friends!Click here for my ResumePlease feel free to contact me any time via email or phone.
