A Modest Upbringing
Born in 1960, Mrs. Schuster grew up on a farm in Clarance, Missouri. She went on to study biochemistry and work in a local nursing home, where she met her future husband, Timothy. Tim was also a student at the nursing school and in 1982, the couple got married and had two children, Kristin and Tyler.
After the birth of their children, the family moved to Fresno, California and then to Clovis, California. Clovis is a wealthy area and they were able to move there because Mrs. Schuster had a well-paying career in the lucrative laboratory business. She eventually opened her own lab while Tim worked as an administrator at a medical center.
