Growing up as a military brat, I lived in various parts of Italy and Greece. As an adult, I have settled in the Bay Area and raise my daughter, Abigail, to speak Italian and English. Previous professional experience includes Public Reations and Marketing positions with SS Public Relations and Travel Agent Magazine. Currently, I am a stay home mom and a Board Member of Girotondo Italian Preschool and Kindergarten in Marin County. My parents still spend half the year at their Venice residence and we visit whenever we can.
