At the end of her first year, in the summer of 1971, she relocated to New Hampshire to be closer to her future husband, Andrew, whom she married on August 1st, 1972.  They had taken up residence in Bartlett, New Hampshire, where they worked in the restaurant business and built their first house.  After three years enjoying the scene and skiing in North Conway, they decided that she should return to college and continue her education.

She enrolled in Plymouth State College as a physical education and health major and became the #1 player on the women’s tennis team and the starting center on the women’s lacrosse team.  She only managed to play two seasons of tennis and one of lacrosse as she became pregnant with her first child, Travis.  She and her husband then moved to South Berwick, ME were she taught at Berwick Academy while finishing her undergraduate degree.  She coached numerous sports at Berwick including soccer, tennis, and lacrosse.  After leaving Berwick, she was hired by Marshwood Junior High School in South Berwick as a physical educations and health teacher and also pursued her masters of science degree in health and wellness at Plymouth State.  She spent the rest of her teaching career at Marshwood and also established and was head coach of the Marshwood High School women’s soccer team for nine years.
