I Graduated from the Math and Science Stuyvesant High School in New York City in 1975. I went to Long Island University in 1979 and took various science courses and had a 3.5 GPA but I never graduated as I couldn't really get it together.
I then worked for the New York Daily News for 5 years as an editorial assistant but I quit to get into the field of Health Foods. I worked for 20 years in all positions in health food stores.
It wasn't until 1993 that I got my Bachelors degree from UC Santa Barbara in Latin American Studies. I also had afinished with 3.5 GPA..
I also worked as a bed and breakfast manager for about 5 years. I am currently working on renovating an Estate in the South Jersey shore
