Libertyville, Illinois, USA

I am a Burnley born Yorkshire raised lass who after age 6 grew up on the isle of Anglesey in North Wales. I am a Pharmacist by training (Nottingham University) and was a drug developer by trade (at Abbott and then AbbVie) before I retired in 2017. I am very proud to have brought dozens of new therapies to patients that have made a remarkable difference in their lives. I became an avid genealogist researching family history when my Dad began to show dementia symptoms and a deep interest in his family origins and it became my hobby and obsession to find out all I could before his dementia passed the point where he would be able to remember his younger days. How cool it has been to uncover the history of the people in our family and to document it so that their lives can be remembered forever... this is my hobby, my Passion and my obsession...
