She was born to Paul and Estelle Balog. After graduating from the Bronx High School of Science at 16, she attended The City College of New York before transferring to, and graduating from, Cornell University at the age of 20. She met her husband-to-be, Isaac, at the City College of New York, and they were married and lived in Riverdale after her graduation.

She then earned her Master’s Degree from Lehman College, and had three children.

Working as a Guidance Counselor, first in New York and then in Florida, she and her family relocated to Monroe, New York in 1986, and then to Maitland, Florida, in 1991. She also taught in the Religious School of Congregation Ohev Shalom and in Camp Ramah.
