I grew up in Fairview Park, OH and married my high school sweetheart, Marty, after I graduated from MetroHealth’s nursing school and he from Wittenberg University. I stayed with MetroHealth and worked as a registered nurse for 13 years. I left the hospital when we moved to Charlotte, North Carolina and then to Princeton, New Jersey. We moved back to Cleveland 18 years ago.
We have two grown sons. Ryan, his wife, Amanda and our first grandchild, Porter live in Avon Lake, OH. Our son, Steven lives in Westlake, OH with our shared dog Tess.
I often think I am a reluctant Cleveland sports fan. My father took my sisters and me to many sporting events. We’ve rooted for some good – and not so good – teams through the years. Having two boys interested in sports, they became the perfect ticket partner for my husband for Cavs, Guardians (Indians), and Browns games. Now that they are grown with lives of their own, I have suddenly become that ticket partner. Fortunately, our broadway series tickets at Playhouse Square provide us consistent good entertainment to offset the sports highs and lows.
I enjoy gardening, decorating and renovating houses (we’ve owned nine!) tennis, golf and traveling.
