Dale grew up on Long Island and spent many happy summers on the beach. She attended Hofstra University where she met her husband Alex. Dale started her career in New York City as a Systems Engineer for a computer system manufacturer and eventually became a SE Manager, followed by several by years as Regional Director of Marketing covering New York, New England and as far west as Michigan. She eventually went into sales focusing on IBM mainframe attached subsystems. Her daughter Nicole was born in 1992, and after a year and one half of missing some of her precious milestones, Dale decided to retire from corporate life and become a full time Mom (and never regretted it) When Nicole started full time school Dale looked for work that was local and allowed the flexibility to be available for her daughter's events and the timing was just right for Jesse Lee was looking for a new administrator. It's now 19 years later! Being part of the Jesse Lee family has been a wonderful and loving experience with fellow staff members and the congregation.
