A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME . . . I was born in Portsmouth. Like so many of you, my father worked in the shipyard. He taught me to work hard, respect everyone and to serve my community. After graduating from Woodrow Wilson High School, I became a nurse and started my career in public health. My husband David Ratcliff, a photographer, artist and inventor, and I raised two children. Both are grown and live locally. We are the proud grandparents of identical twin boys.
