I spent 4 years in the Navy, got married, had children. Eventually finished my degree at U of MD and tried a number of careers before my current one -- running the family business, Country Squire Cleaners in Potomac (the official dry cleaners of the WJ 50th reunion). But my obsession over all these years has been art. With my current wife Linda, we run Light Street Gallery and have one of the largest contemporary art collections on the East Coast. Together we have 6 children and 9 grands (1 at WJ).

I am delighted to try to share, in capsule version, the past 50 years of my life. After high school, I attended Mount Vernon College so I could stay close to home and keep my “toes” in the ballet world I loved so deeply. In 1968, I headed to the U of Grenoble for a semester and then returned to graduate with my BA in English from The American University. With family strongly encouraging graduate school, my next stop was Boston University School of Law, from which I earned my JD in 1973. At the suggestion of a law professor, my first career decision was joining the General Counsel’s office of The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an agency with which I stayed for close to 8 years. My last 4 years there were as Director of the Office of Consumer Participation. A change of presidents and administrations tolled the end of that great life experience. From there, I decided to exercise more personal control over my daily life and began selling real estate. Within a few years, I moved into management and eventually ran 2 high producing Long & Foster offices in Maryland. By 2001, the lure of a warmer climate set our sights on Florida and the migration began. The first step was a second home in Ponte Vedra Beach, which we still own. Then, in 2007, I took the position of Chief Operating Officer of Viera Realty, Inc., the real estate division of a wonderful new and thriving town on Florida’s Space Coast. I also began serving on the Board of Directors of Brevard Zoo; and in 2012 converted that passion into yet another career endeavor. When the position of Director of Development unexpectedly opened, I decided it was the opportunity of a lifetime and I took it. I am working longer and harder than ever; however, my love of what I do is unsurpassed by any previous career endeavor.  

Now to the true blessings of my life! I have a brilliant husband I adore beyond words, 5 exceptional children and 6 (so far) grandchildren. My husband, Tom, is VP of a homebuilding company and designs extraordinary homes throughout the area. Our children, from oldest to youngest, are: Ben, Managing Partner with Great American Restaurants in Virginia; Jeff, a Special Agent based in DC; Faith, a former Trauma Nurse in Georgia; Lindsay, a United Airlines flight attendant; and Matthew, a Captain in the USMC and Cobra pilot. The grandbabies are 3 girls and 3 boys and range in age from 8 months to almost 4 years. We live with 2 precious Chihuahuas that are the loves of our life. Travel, food and wine are our passions and we engage in all to the max!  Blessed with great health and energy, every day is spectacular!

After college and grad school I moved to the San Francisco area and began my career as a pediatric occupational therapist. Career, home and family: it’s been a rewarding path.  Two years ago I turned my practice over to one of my long term employees and “almost” retired, limiting my professional activities to those things I like best.  With three grown children in the area and four grandsons, we have a rich life.   I won't be able to attend the 50th reunion in 2016, but I'm enjoying a sort of mini-reunion in reading people's bios.

Biologist, retired Divorced 2016-03-21 10:44:49
After receiving my B.S. in biology at Muhlenberg College in Allentown PA, I went to Purdue University for a PhD in biology. There I met my future (and since then ex-) husband from Switzerland. We moved to Geneva, then Schaffhausen (north of Zurich).  I then moved close to Zurich where I entered the pharma world (J&J pharmaceutical group) and later helped form a start-up pharmaceutical consultancy / clinical research organization, which later had affiliates in Europe, Israel and India. This involved a lot of travelling – for visiting clients, attending conferences and helping out in projects. Whenever a short vacation was possible I took bicycle trips through Europe and then to parts of Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia. The business in clinical research was a very intense (hardly any free time) but a rewarding time. After more than 20 years we sold the company and I am now devoting my time to training my young dog (he thinks he’s training me) and travelling with him through Europe in my camping bus. Before retirement I thought retirement would allow me to have a lot more time to read and spend time improving my photography, but time goes so fast!
I recently sold my house (4 flights of stairs) and am now enjoying my new condo (one floor with elevator) overlooking the lake of Zurich and with a view of the Alps. This makes it easier to get away and is more practical for the years to come.
After spending about 2/3 of my life in Switzerland now the life in the US is very far away. Unfortunately I’m not good at keeping in touch with people, but I enjoyed reading your bios and seeing your pictures. I’m sorry I cannot make the reunion! Have fun!
