Married for 18 years to the most understanding, patient, and tolerant man on the planet. Mother of two sons, 13 and 17. Fervent supporter of Catholic schools. Finishing a Master’s in bioethics and health policy, I work full-time in clinical research in an oncology division at a large secular university. While I have a wicked sense of humor, I’m moody and prickly, undeserving of all that I have. In another life I would have been a hermit, but a hermit with cable TV with a lineup that included a 24-hour “Law and Order” channel and a perfectly organized office with lots of fine point, colored Sharpies.
