I have had a very interesting life to date. I grew up on Long Island in NY. In fact in the next town over from where i am living now.have lived in switzerland for 12 years, Israel for 9.5 years and now I have come back to the good ole U.S of A. I started out as a fashion designer, was a journalist ran an import business, and opened an event planning, catering business. I studied fashion, business and became a chef. During this time I managed to have and raise 4 fabulous children.
