After graduating from college I did clinical chemistry in a medical laboratory in south Florida. I spent ten years in the medical lab. When we started a family I left medicine and built and operated a large preschool for 12 years. When we relocated to Orlando I began teaching chemistry and of all my careers, teaching is by far the most rewarding. I am married to Steve and have two grown children, Lizanne and Stephen Jr. We have two horses that we spend time riding and caring for. I spend my spare time hiking, traveling, and spending time with my family.
