Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on October 3, 1940, she spent her childhood in Boardman and Canfield, Ohio.

She went on to teach typing, shorthand, and bookkeeping at Elyria High School in Ohio before moving to St. Petersburg in 1965 where she taught at St. Pete Junior College and Northeast High School.
