She was born March 17, 1967, to Daniel and Theresa Pomana in Cheektowaga, New York, and raised in Sloan, a small Polish immigrant community suburb of Buffalo, New York.

She graduated from Trocaire College as a Registered Nurse in 1987 and subsequently worked at St. Joseph's Community Hospital in Cheektowaga in the Critical Care units and Med-Surg floor. On August 22, 1992, she began dating her future husband David Carl Collipp. In 1993, she decided to further her knowledge of nursing and attended Daemen College in Buffalo. There, she proudly graduated with a 4.0 GPA for her Bachelor's degree in Nursing in 1995. Later in 1995 she was united with David in marriage on June 29.
