The Details in brief:
I was born in New York City, grew up on Long Island, and attended The University at Albany. After graduating, I returned to the City, but life didn't keep me there. First, I moved to London for two years, then to San Diego, my adopted home town, where I met my sailor husband, Andrew, and gave birth to two of my children. Whew! That was enough moving around, and I'd have stayed in San Diego happily ever after, but the Navy had other ideas. They shipped us first to Annapolis and then to Pittsburgh, where I've been since 1998 and plan to stay!
