I am originally from Georgetown, South Carolina. I graduated from Georgetown High School (Winyah Campus) in 1985. I am the daughter of the late Donald Altman and Mary Bullock Altman. I have two younger sisters, Amy and April.¬†I am married to Max O’Cain, an Engineer Manager at Westinghouse Nuclear Fuel and the proud mom of two children, Danny Burt and Mary Beth, and two step-children Marcy and Ryan. I adore my pet black lab, Ace. My hobbies include reading, shopping, boating, and spending time with my family.
