I was born in NYC and raised in Westchester County, New York. My folks owned a drug store in Rockefeller Center so we spent lots of time in the city and worked in the store from age 10. I have a wonderful family including my son Jimmy, partner Joe, and two older brothers.
I received my bachelors in language with a minor in government from Georgetown University.
I’ve been living in Tucson, Arizona since 1977 and worked as an escrow officer for various title companies for 12 years. I even sold insurance for a year and decided that was not the job for me! In 1990, I started in the mortgage business as a loan originator, including owning my own company for 7 years.
In the past I was an avid racquetball enthusiast and loved to ski. Now I spend my time golfing, reading, working, cooking, and enjoying my four dogs. My favorite places to go include New York, San Diego, and Italy. I also love to go to the movies, the theater, watch cop shows, and entertain in my home … the bar is always well stocked!
