I am widowed and have a 16 year old daughter. I grew up in Alexandria, Virgina and moved to Maryland in the 1980s. I worked for Verizon for 28 years, did programming for 15 years (loved it), did IT support for years, and ended my VZ career as a Staff/Project Manager in the IT department. I was recently retired, although I do continue to work (more than) part time at the present time. Im still working on answering these profile questions so bear with me.
