I was born in Northern Ireland (yes, that's actually a separate country) but have lived in the U.S. since I was 8 months old. I finally became a U.S. citizen in June 2006 after a VERY botched application process on the behalf of Homeland Security.
I earned Bachelors and Masters degrees in social work and was an HIV social worker for about 8 years at which point I couldn't take it any more! I earned a Masters in computer science and currently work as a programmer.
My husband is Carl, and we live in Parkville, MD with plans to move to San Diego, CA in 2012. We have a pug named Killer, a cat named Pickles, and a bunny named Sugar Plum.
