Born and raised catholic, I will forever thank my young CCD teacher in 3rd grade who told us we didn't need to take the Bible literally. The fact I still remember it more than 50 years later shows how impactful it was. I continued going to church through high school but I was done once I went to college. I got a degree in Plastics engineering and realized soon after how much I hated most of the plastics industry. Made my way eventually into teaching where I currently work. I was married for over 20 years but I'm now on my own with 2 grown children. I'm still interested in learning and experiencing new adventures (went ziplining and skydiving for my 60th birthday). Love reading, movies, and playing games.
