I was born in San Bernadino, CA in 1974 and our family moved shortly thereafter to Azusa followed by a move to Glendora where we lived until 1980 when we moved from Los Angeles County to Oceanside in San Diego County where the family remained until my brother graduated from high school. After graduating from Rancho Buena Vista High School in 1992 I attended Concordia University in Irvine for one year followed by two years at Mira Costa and Palomar Community Colleges. I met my husband in 1993 but we did not begin dating until 1994 when we met by chance for the second time through a mutual friend. We were married in 1995 and lived in an Oceanside apartment while my husband was active in the US Marine Corps at Camp Pendleton. At that time I worked part-time for UPS and part-time for a mortgage lender. Our son was born in 1996 and we moved to Claymont, DE when he was 6 weeks old, after my husband had completed his active duty. We lived with my in-laws for a few months and then moved to our own apartment in where we lived for almost 2 years. Our daughter was born in 1998 and we purchased our home in Newark that same year where we have lived ever since. Both our children graduated from Newark High School. Our son graduated from University of Delaware which will be our daughter's alma mater in just a few short months.

After moving to Delaware we worked a few different jobs until settling into more permanent employment. I worked at The Franklin Mint and Beneficial Bank very briefly and then at Wilmington Housing Partnership for a few years. Following that I was a stay-at-home mom for 15 years during which time I operated a lucrative Avon business. I've re-entered the corporate world in the financial services sector within the past 10 years where I have worked as a Small Business Credit Card Customer Service Agent and a Credit Analyst in Small Business Credit Card Underwriting. I am currently a Small Business Credit Card Senior Underwriter ("Officer; Senior Client Services Advocate" are my official titles) who specializes in resolving business credit-related client escalations referred from various areas of the bank, including the Office of the CEO.

My husband worked at The Franklin Mint for a short time before joining American Document Management where he was promoted to Supervisor quickly and worked for several years. He then began his employment at CitiSteel USA where he worked as a steelworker for 16 years until the plant closed in late 2012. Shortly after my re-entry to the corporate world, he accepted a job offer from the US Department of the Treasury at the US Mint in Philadelphia, PA. He has worked there ever since as a Coining Machine Operator, yet he has also been cross-trained in several other areas and assists in different capacities as needed.

Have you ever considered participating in one of WikiTree's Connect-A-Thons? It's a great opportunity to add new profiles, whether they are extended family members or someone who fits into of one of your projects. The next one will run from Friday, April 22nd to Monday, April 25th.

I want to personally invite you to join the Mid-Atlantic Team because of your Pennsylvania and New York roots and your interest in Pennsylvania cemetery research. If you are interested in participating, you can sign up in the G2G forum registration post ( and add another badge to your collection. You are not limited to adding profiles for only this region, of course. Hope you'll consider joining the fun!

By the way, I notice that your Dad's family moved from the Mid-Atlantic region to Iowa after the Civil War. I, too, have an indirect family line that moved from Pennsylvania to Muscatine County, Iowa after the Civil War. Seems like Iowa was a popular destination, and a place that family decided to remain in.

Actually, I do have a question. When attempting to upload my Wells GEDCOM, I'm getting a "Your image is too large" error message. Is it because my GEDCOM is too large and, if so, how to I make it smaller to upload? Thank you for being so warm & welcoming!
