Briefly What Happened Since Leaving School

After graduation, I worked for a year before I married Frank Taylor.  Frank and I started our family in 1983 with Kelly, followed by Daniel in 1986 and Adam in 1989.  I stayed at home with our children until 1992, when I returned to college to study nursing.  After graduating from HJC in 1994, I worked for 12 years in dialysis nursing in Hagerstown, MD.  In 2005, while still employed as a nurse, I started making handcrafted soaps and began a home-based business, Cedar Ridge Soaps, www.cedarridgesoaps.com.  In May of 2006, I left nursing to pursue our business full-time.  We currently have sales in retail, wholesale and private labeling.  Frank continues to teach carpentry in Frederick County at the Career & Technology Center.  Kelly is employed there, also, as an instructional assistant while she pursues a degree to teach English at the high school level.   She married Greg Merrbach in 2003 and they live in Frederick.  Daniel is attending Providence College  in Providence, RI while living at Our Lady of Providence Seminary, where he is discerning the priesthood.  Adam is attending Hagerstown Community College, studying music composition and working at the cafe in Borders in Hagerstown.  He plans to transfer to Shepherd to complete his education.
