About Me

I was born and raised in Central Massachusetts and that is where I reside today. Though there are days when I would love to move, the kids and grandkids keep me here.

2018

I’ve been driving a school bus for the last 22 years, give or take. A few years ago, unhappy with the company that I worked for and increasing issues with my hip and lower back, I decided to go to college.  Obtaining a degree was one of the many items on my bucket list. I thought I would be happy with an Associate Degree and able to find a job that I liked. What I discovered was, learning is addictive (I love it) and driving a school bus pays better than entry-level jobs in healthcare.

Just as I was about to graduate, I took a chance and applied to a state university.  I was accepted into their online degree program and now face the decision of whether to go or not. The burden of paying for a degree is daunting and I’m not sure I can justify the cost at my age. I have the summer to decide and apply for scholarships because all of a sudden I am no longer poor enough to qualify for federal grants.

To be continued…

I am an independent distributor with Life’s Abundance, a natural pet food company.  I do this as a hobby because I feed my dog and cats their food exclusively. Being a distributor helps pay for it.  Their products are top of the line and I tell people about them all the time. Some want to try them, some do not. I’m really not a high-pressure salesperson so it’s their choice.  You can take a look by clicking on the above link.

In 2012, thanks to my mom, I was brought into the world of Alzheimer’s Disease.  Last year I signed up to become a volunteer with the Alzheimer’s Association. They were launching a new program and it seemed a perfect way for me to help educate and advocate. I am a Community Ambassador and my goal is to provide family and caregivers with resources and support.  I need to get on that…

That pretty much sums up “me” for now.
