When I was six months old, we moved to an unknown location, then moved to Duluth, Minnesota. On September 1957, my sister Merri Bulgier was born. There was another move to Aurora, Colorado when another sister Patricia Sue "Trish"Bulgier was born on September, 1958. Moves were less clear but in June of 1963 we were living in Riverside, California when my brother Jim Bulgier was born.
I attended kindergarten in Riverside, California and first grade in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada. At one point, in my teens, I counted all of the schools I had attended and came up with 24 schools, including 14 high schools. In ninth grade, I went to five high schools and did not attend school at all in the month of October.
At the end of my junior year I was in the school district of Evergreen, Colorado. We calculated that I had enough credits to graduate, but discovered that a school in Arkansas had changed some credits. The school suggested a college class that summer and they would give me high school credit and I could graduate. I took 12 credit hours that summer, but we moved again by the next school year. I attended 3 schools in my senior year by October.
At that time, my stepmother Barbara told me and my sister that the reason she and my father could not get along was because of us girls, so my sister and I moved into an apartment in downtown Denver. We were not able to attend school there because it was out of our parent's district, so I dropped out. I got my GED when I turned 18.
I worked as an Administrator, Bookkeeper and similar occupations until about 1982 when I worked in a residential treatment center for troubled boys in Mesa, Arizona. There, I met her first husband, David Taylor. We moved to his gold mine, Middle Camp Mine and Mill, near Florence Arizona. We were married from about 1984 to 1991, by this time living in Mayer, Arizona.
I continued to work in social services, and when working as a Juvenile Detention Officer learned that a single person could be a Foster Parent. I was licensed in 1992. In 1994, Arizona's Children Association recruited me to provide the first family-based shelter in Northern Arizona, which we opened 1/3/95.
Then in 1997 I married my childhood sweetheart [Fitzhugh-350|SteveFitzhugh]].
