I grew up on the Jersey Shore, in both Brielle and Normandy Beach, attending St. Peter School in Point Pleasant Beach and St. Rose High School in Belmar. I then went on to the University of Vermont and got my degree in Art History.
For a number of years, I lived out of state, but returned to the Shore regularly to see family and friends. Then in 2009, I purchased my house on Tuscaloosa Lane. I became an active member of the Cedarcroft Club, and actually started First Fridays. My son, Mason, was only 3 weeks old when we attended the very first First Friday.
