By origin, I was born in the Philippines; have been a resident of Charleston/Goose Creek, S.C. since 1976 and was a resident for 3 years in Snellville, Georgia between 1986-1989, married to Frank Mendoza, also from the Philippines, have 2 children - boy and girl named Mike and Tisa, with no grandchildren yet. I worked in clinical labs, had been the Supervisor and Technical Director of Laboratory, retired. Music is my passion, I've been playing the piano by ear only since I can remember it, probably at age 3 because I was asked to play at a program in School (I wasn't enrolled yet) the piano as a special guest. I love classical, semi-classical music. I'm retired now, have been busy as Eucharistic Minister/Lector/Commentator, involved with Hospital Ministry, have been volunteering at a hospital and providing piano music at another hospital.
