I worked as a secretary and bookkeeper. Then I graduated college and became a teacher. I was born in Manhattan but then I lived in Jamaica, Queens, and for more than 30 years I then lived in Nassau County, NY (Long Island). I left LI and moved to the Bronx in 2015. Shortly after I relocated to NJ. I have been married twice but both marriages broke up (one due to immaturity and the other because of addiction). I'm a proud member of Families Anonymous and Adult Children of Alcoholic and Dysfunctional Families (although I currently live in my own).
