Wow, I would say wait for the book to come out or the HBO series. ..
Born in Halifax Nova Scotia Canada.
Mother Irish, Father Lebanese. Both born in Halifax.
I was brought up and went to Catholic schools all my life. I have one younger brother 8 years younger.
I worked all through highschool and through my college days as a tour gude. City tours then eventually for the Department of tourism of Nova Scotia. I worked on the Blue Nose which is a tall ship and is on the Canadian dime
My Mother is a theatre actress and and growing up I use to run lines with her. Always had the acting bug myself which stayed with me for many years as I eventually got into doing commericals and film and TV later in life when I lived in Las Vegas.
I moved to Napa California not long after I graduated University at the age of 23. Met and married my husband a few years later.
We have 4 grown children and 3 granddaughters today that are the apple of my eye.
My mother's side of the family lives in Napa which is why I moved to Napa as I couldn't imagaine living where there was no family. Several years later I married. For many years becasue of my marketing and communications skills I found myself working in the wine industry in the early 80's thru 1998. Also during that time my husband and I started a construction business and lighting retrofit company for energy concervation. We would eventually move to Albequerque, Las Vegas and Oregon then back to Napa. I have always found time to give back and would volunteer where ever I lived. I have worked as a tasting room manager, I have worked at a country club on the golf course as a marshal and a beverage card person as well a the retail pro shop manager. I helped run a multi million dollar construction business with my then husband for many years . A company that was rankied fastest growing company in Northern California two years in a row. I have have worked in ICU and the surgery center in a Hospital where I learned to do pre opp for patients. I have always had a very good compasionate caring nature when it's comes to helping others. In vegas I aquired my Nevada Real estate license and was a public speaker and a spokesperson for various companies selling highrise condo's. I also worked as a 21 dealer for two major casino's until the smoke drove me out of there. On a trip to Costa Rica in the 90's I went on my first white water rafting trip where I was hooked and we later bought our own 10 person self bailer raft and starting doing rafting trip with the kids every year. My mother's side of the family in Napa has been in the chocolate business since 1995 and in the last 10 years turned their chocolate candy store into a wine and chocolate bar. I am a huge advocate for my families business and their boutique organic 100% cab grapes they grow and sell. I have been a day trader for futures (currencies ) where I had developed a program to trade based on real time information.
I love to run 4 miles every day around the Silverado country club for exersize. I like to play tennis and golf but I am more into running these days. I am a Warrior Basketball fan and a SF Giants fan. Huge Joe Montana fan with tthe 49ers back in the day. I have run the Bay to Breakers 5 times with my cousin who I just happened to be named after. Yes our family was not that creative but then again they probably never thought we would have spent the last 30 plus years living near each other and being like sisters and best friends . I moved to Napa with my cat that I have had for 15 years. Inheritied from my middle daughter when he was only 3 months old. Along with my two Golden Retrievers Max who is purebred white and a british golden retreiver who will be 12 this year and Elle May who was the tallest yellow golden you have ever seen who would have been 8 this year. I lost her to a silent cancer last may at only 7. Hardest thing ever I had to go through. She was my runner with me on my 4 miles and Max's best girl!!! I moved back to Napa 4 years and I have no intention of ever moving away again. I am not married but close with my ex after 29 years. I love living in Napa . Living here is a life style. I can't imagine living any where else. I love my home and my 1/2 acre yard with fruit trees, lots of grass, my vegetables gardens . The next chapter will be my best chapter yet. !!! Heres to making each day count and not sweating the small stuff.
