I was born and raised in California.  I went to junior college right out of high school in 1983.  I went to work at the local drug store at that time and entered the management program.  I made it to assistant manager when I decided to change careers.  I became a pharmacy tech.  I enjoyed that career for 14 years.  In 2004 I had the opportunity to go back to college so I took the chance.  I graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Ca with a BS in Biology.  From there I worked for a biotech company developing antibodies. After five years of biotech work, I decided to move to Belize where I now attend WUHS.
