Let me tell you a little about myself. I was born and raised in a small town in the north of Ireland, and have 3 sisters and 2 brothers who all still live in Ireland. I attended the University of Ulster where I completed my degree in social studies and education. After graduation, I spent two years in Kenya as a volunteer teacher, afterward returning to Ireland where I taught for one year. Then I came to California where I have resided for the last 38 years. I am very happily married to my best friend, Frank, and am blessed to be the mother of a wonderful 27-year-old son called Brendan who is a certified public accountant.
