I was born and raised in Fresno, California. Like most baby boomers, I ived the ideal post-WWII lifestyle. I served six years in the California Army National Guard while going to school. I graduated from Fresno State in 1970 and obtained my Physical Therapy training at Cal State Long Beach in 1973. I worked in the Long Beach area for two years and moved to Atascadero in 1974 after buying a small Physical Therapy practice. I slowly built a successful business with offices in Atascadero, Paso Robles and King City and retired in 2012 I helped to raise two sons, a stepson, and a stepdaughter. I moved to San Luis Obispo during the beginning of the pandemic in 2020. I am currently active at the SLO Senior Center as a member and volunteer. I am also a limited volunteer with SLO Village. I play bridge four to six times a week both in person and on two different websites. I play one game with my brother, sister, and a friend who all live in different states which is much fun. Other interests are walking five to eight miles a day with my dog, gardening, cooking, movies and reading. I am happy to be a new member of SLO RAM.
