I was born in NYC and grew up there and in Spring Lake, NJ. I moved here 2 1/2 years ago from Agoura Hills, CA to be near my mom. I ran a licensed children's daycare in my home for 30 years, worked at a regular veterinarian's office on Saturdays for 19 years and at a pet emergency clinic at night for 6 years. I have 4 grown sons, a wonderful daughter in law and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am currently a nanny for twins in Arden during the day (had to get my baby fix when I moved here as well as my animal fix!) My mom and I recently moved in to a house together so I can help take care of her. She has 2 cats, Kate and Allie, and I have a black lab named Zero!
