How I Got Built

I guess thee only place to start is at the beginning. My dad was from South Carolina and he grew up on a tobacco farm. He graduated from the University of Oklahoma and got his law degree from George Washington Law school in DC.  My mother was from New Jersey and grew up in East Orange, not far from NYC. She graduated from Lebanon Valley College in Annville, PA. Following college, she attended business school. Both of my parents joined the Navy as officers during WWII and met in NYC. 

When my mother found out she was pregnant with me, she left the Navy and moved back to East Orange until the war was over and my dad could come home. I was born in East Orange and spent the first six months of my life there. So I guess I really am a Jersey Girl.
