Would you like to share your employment history?

I worked 33 non continuous years at Kodak starting with delivering mail, becoming a Certified Professional Secretary and my last 10 years were as a Sales Order Sepcialist taking orders for High Speed Color Digital Presses. I've also worked for other companies along the way in the secretarial role and IT networking. I've worked in the call center for PetSmart and State Line Tack when they were in Brockport before I luckily fell into the current part time role with Wegmans Pharmacy.

Would you like to tell us about them

She is a beautiful, talented 36 year old. She went to St Charles Borromeo Grammer School, Aquinas Institute High School and is an Equine Graduate of SUNY Morrisville. She was married in 2000 to Bryan Holland and originally made Ridgeway Avenue their home until we bought a dairy farm and turned it into Oasis Equestrian Center Farm in Bergen in 2005. Sadly, she is in process of divorce but dating a very good man

Grandchildren:

Just one grand child so far - Tyler Gerald Holland, January 2003 -- joy of my life

Would you like to tell us about them?

He is my best buddy. Presently in Middle School in Brockport. He is all boy and loves animals! We all live together in one home at the farm so I get to see him every day! After I was laid off from Kodak last September, I took some of my retirement pennies and took him and his Mom & Dad to DisneyWorld the last week of January 2010!! He had a great time along with all of us. It was so good to be able to share my favorite place with him.

What are your favorite pastimes?

Besides spending time with Tyler, I love walks, sunrise, sunset at the Beach. I'm sorry to say that my busy life has not allowed that to happen but hope to get back into it as life settles down a little. I enjoy working on the farm - feeding the horses and turning them out. Cleaning up and mending fences... I know... silly girl!! I enjoy horseback riding, chick flick movies, romance, country songs, card games and board games in real or on the computer. I enjoy dinner with my ole girl friends, or my sisters and sis in laws and my immediate family.

Places you have traveled and sights you have seen?

I've been to Bermuda; Washington DC; Vancouver BC-to teach them how to do my job! Illinois to meet a g/f I met playing games on the computer. Disney World several times and hope to visit many more times. St Augustine Beach a few times... my favorite beach to visit so far. I have a sister in New Smyrna Beach, FL and a brother in St Petersburg, FL that I have spent time visiting.

What are your proudest moments?

Birth of my child -- college graduation of her also!
Turning a dairy farm into a horse farm!
Surviving my March 2015 heart attack and open heart surgery to repair 5 blocked arteries...thank you God.

Do you have a "Bucket List"?

visiting Hawaii, Australia, Bermunda (again), Disney Cruise & horseback tour of Scotland's Castles, etc.
