I'm a native New Yorker (from Brooklyn) and I moved to Florida with my husband and mother in 2002. We really like it here
except you can't get a decent bagel.
Shortly after we moved, we adopted three kids (yes-three!). At the time that we finalized the adoption, they were 5, 8 & 11 and they're now 9, 12 &
15 years old. We're a multiracial family (my youngest and oldest are biracial) and we're also unschoolers. My mother (RIP: 07/07/07) always said I was
the type of person who had to follow her own path. I guess she was right because we're definitely not your typical, traditional mainstream family.
What else would you like to know about me? I've been a vegetarian for over 20 years, I am a recovering Roman Catholic, I've been agnostic my entire
adult life and have recently become interested in Zen Buddhism. I love hard rock and heavy metal and have been to more concerts than I can remember. I'm
Italian-American and one of my dreams is to visit Italy.
Before I decided to take on the best job in the world as a full time mommy, I was a certified exercise trainer and dance teacher. I worked in many New York
City gyms and studios before I opened my own, New York Dance & Fitness. I still hold my certification and although I've been offered several classes
here in Florida, I've chosen not to go back to work at this time.
