Studied at FAU and received a B.A. in Social Science. I worked for the Palm Beach County Division of Human Services for 12 years as a social worker and then relocated to Georgia. I was the program director of the North Georgia Community Action, Inc. for 17 ½ years and then moved back to Florida. Upon moving back to Florida I worked for the Florida Department of Children & Families for 3 ½ years as a case processor including 2 years with the ICP Medicaid Unit.
