Mrs. Sciales has been married to James since 1990, and they have lived in Wilmington for 7 years. They have four children: Nicholas 23, James 21, Kristian 19 and Gianna 12.
Mrs. Sciales attended Hofstra University on Long Island, NY where she grew up. There, she earned a Bachelor of Science Degree with a major in Accounting. She worked for a CPA firm until their first child was born. For the following 15 years, she ran a successful real estate business from home.
