   I moved to Albany from downstate NY in 1995 to attend SUNY Albany where I majored in Spanish and Italian                       language, civilization and culture.  I met my husband in my third year of college, and he soon began working for Albany      Fire Department. Since then, I’ve worked in various customer service positions for insurance companies, marketing             research and translation agencies.  I love the opportunity to learn new things and meet new people (and I like to talk.  A  LOT).  In addition to working at TI, I hold down a full-time job of “Momming” three teenagers – all of whom are active athletes, playing lacrosse, ice hockey and soccer!
