Florida Executive Realty 2015-12-08 17:10:25
In reading my bio from our last class reunion, I found that my life during the first forty years after graduation, was a lot more interesting than the immediate past ten years. To date, I am married to the same wonderful husband since 1987, live in the same house since 1994, enjoy the same beachfront condo that was purchased in 1988, drive the same 2006 Dodge Carravan, and continue the same career path of being a realtor. One change is that I affiliated with a different real estate company. I am now with Florida Executive Realty. In addition, I am focusing on senior lifestyles. These are people who look to enjoy  the life that they worked hard to make a reality. Choices include:  1) downsizing to a low maintenance neighborhood to allow for more travel time  2) upsizing to that elaborately upgraded, 5,000 square foot dream home  3) purchasing that second home condo on warm, tropical waters or the mountain cabin by a lake  4) moving to a senior community that offers activities and companionship.  The number of options are lengthy.  I love what I do and I am happy that I can be successful in helping others achieve their lifestyle goals.  One thing that had not changed is that I am very blessed. I hope that in the coming years, I will be further blessed in finding that many of you will become a more significant part of my life. Should anyone be visiting the Tampa Bay area, please contact me. I always am happy to hear from you.    Cindi Schmick Robbins  4431 Avenue Cannes  Lutz, FL 33558  Florida Executive Realty  cell: 813-966-3138  cindirltr@aol.com          Bio from Cindi Schmick...married name Robbins  cindirltr@aol.com  email     BIO. submitted 4/11/07     After reading many of the bios plus catching-up and reminiscing at the 40th Class Reunion, in some ways I feel like I am back in high school. I consider myself to be very fortunate to be a part of the WJ Class of 1966. I also consider all of us very fortunate to have so many classmates who have worked so hard to not only gather us together again, but also give us the opportunity to renew, build and strengthen relationships. Thank you.     In regard to what Cindi Schmick Robbins has been doing for the past 40 years, I will try to keep it to the "cliff notes" version. To begin, after high school graduation, Brenda Abbott and I, along with 8 other girls, spent the summer of 1966 touring Europe. Mr. Hood was our faculty chaperon. Great trip! Upon returning, I began the fall semester at the University of Maryland. I became a Sigma Kappa and Tom Meleney's older sister, Betsy, became my sorority big sister. I graduated in 1970 with a degree in business. I was eager to begin my career in the mortgage finance/real estate field. But more so, I was eager to become independent and self-supporting. I never again wanted to hear those ever so familiar words of "as long as you live under my roof ...". I wanted my own roof.    I was on a mission. Within a month of graduation from Maryland, I was hired by Maryland National Bank, bought a new 1970 Mustang, rented an apartment and moved to Baltimore. Life was wonderful. Then a year later, "it" happened. I was "down-sized". And this was before anyone knew what down-sizing was. I was devastated. To make matters worse, I had to move back in with my parents in Rockville. There I was again back under the ol' parental roof. Then, shortly thereafter, I was offered a job at Freddie Mac to become one of their original employees. Needing a place to live, and my own roof, I bought my first home which was a townhouse at Shady Grove Village in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Life was wonderful again.    In 1974, I accepted a position with a private mortgage insurance company in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and relocated. I began work on organizing a subsidiary corporation to open in the state of Florida. That happened the following year, at which time I moved to Tampa, Florida.    In 1980 my mother was diagnosed with stage four lymphoma and given 30 days to live. She was accepted into an experimental chemo program at the National Cancer Institute at NIH. She was hospitalized at NIH for two of the following five and a half years of her life. We were blessed to have her with us that long. Due to her illness, I spent a great deal of time traveling between Tampa and Washington. When I was at NIH, I often thought about Mary Pratt. When we were in junior and senior high school, she lived on the NIH grounds and I would visit her. As a teenager, I never thought that later in life I would be there for such a different reason.     During that same time frame of the early 80's, I also began looking for another career challenge.  I fulfilled the requirements and became licensed as a real estate broker. In 1982, I opened Sand Dollar Realty as the Broker/Owner. One of my clients introduced me to my future husband, Bill Robbins. He was active duty military at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa and was on his way to be stationed at the Pentagon. We became engaged and were married on February 7, 1987 at Christ Lutheran Church in Bethesda, Maryland. For the first six months, we had a commuter marriage with Bill living in Fairfax, Virginia and I in Tampa. When I realized that this probably was not the best way to enjoy married life, I moved back to the D.C. area to join him. Coldwell Banker bought my business in Tampa and I affiliated with them in northern Virginia.      In February 1990, my husband received orders to relocate to Travis Air Force Base which is located outside of San Francisco. Off we went. This was my first experience in a true military environment. It was quite an adjustment for me and the Air Force. However, it did result into a part of my life for which I am very grateful. I saw first hand, and became acutely aware, of the sacrifices made by military members and their families. All of us should be very appreciative of their service.  During that time I found a job as branch manager for a large mortgage banking firm in Sacramento and also volunteered as the financial counselor at Travis AFB.    Three years later, after 26 years in the Air Force, my husband retired as a Colonel and we moved back to Tampa, Florida. While our house was being built we lived in our beach condo on the Gulf of Mexico. At that time, I re-entered the real estate field. Today I am a RE/MAX agent and continue to market and sell executive homes, beach condos, secondary residences and investment properties. Although the housing market has slowed, the Tampa Bay area is still attracting those who are looking for a little piece of paradise.  Plus the housing prices are substantially lower than in other areas. If you, or some one you know, may be interested in real estate information, I would be happy to provide it.     In addition to working over the last 40 years, I have spent some time traveling. I have visited the Far East, Hawaii, England and a good part of the United States mainland. For the past seven years, Jacque Guinan Stevens and our husbands plus several other couples have rented and enjoyed a vacation home in the Nags Head area. This has become an annual event for fun, sun and just kick'n back.      As for other activities, I am a member of Grace Lutheran Church and the local Sigma Kappa Alumnae Chapter. I also serve on the steering committee for "Speaking of Women's Health" as well as being a member of the Board of Directors for Infants and Young Children.     I have been blessed with a good life and contributing to that are the friendships that were made while I was in school. A number of those friendships that I have through the WJ Class of 1966 go back to the fourth grade at Alta Vista Elementary School. As a fourth grader, or even a high school senior, I could not have imagined what it would be like when we would be turning 60. For most us, that is next year. Maybe we should celebrate with a "sixties party". Regardless, I hope that I will be seeing all of you at the next class reunion.     Should any of you find yourselves in the Tampa Bay area, please let me know. I would love to hear from you.    Send Cynthia (Cindi) a MessageSend Cynthia (Cindi) a Message

nonprofit executive (retired); jewelry artist TheStoriedBead.etsy.com Married 2 2016-04-25 17:18:01
Here's a brief update of what I've done post-WJ. I did my undergraduate work at Harvard-Radcliffe, majoring in British History and Literature; earned a doctorate in English Language and Literature at Yale; joined the Yale faculty as an assistant professor and taught there for 5 years; decided to leave academia for a career in public policy; returned to DC and got a job as a junior analyst at the Congressional Budget Office, where I worked for 4 years; in 1986 moved to the Transportation Research Board (TRB) of the non-profit National Academies (National Academy of Sciences et al), where I spent the rest of my career. In the fall of 2013 I retired as Associate Executive Director of TRB, which is an organization that coordinates, manages, and conducts research on all modes and aspects of transportation. After retirement, I decided to open an online shop for my handcrafted jewelry on the Etsy marketplace (TheStoriedBead.etsy.com). I also am an active member of the Lake Barcroft Art League, and I exhibit and sell my work at local art and craft shows in the DC area.
 
When I returned to DC after teaching at Yale, I met my husband, Robert (Bob) Levy, a senior economist with the Center for Naval Analyses in Arlington, Virginia. Bob (B.S. University of Pennsylvania , Ph.D. Northwestern) and I have been married for 33 years and have two wonderful daughters, Alexandra and Robin. Alex is an historian (A.B. University of Pennsylvania, M.A. University of Virginia) and serves as Program Director at the Atomic Heritage Foundation in Washington, DC. She and her boyfriend Michael Korschek plan to marry in September. Robin (A.B. Northwestern University) is an aspiring writer who is currently living in Jerusalem and writing a book about her experiences in the Middle East. 

I really enjoyed our 40th reunion and hope to see many old friends at the 50th! It will be fun to reminisce together about the things we still love from our high school days and to catch up on the less expected turns our lives have taken.

Story   Life Having graduated from Walter Johnson, I went to the University of Wisconsin, Madison. I became an active member of the theatre dept.there. I then transferred to Boston University during my Junior year. I left Boston in the Spring of my Junior year to live in London with my English husband. I worked as a telephonist/typist for a commercial production company for a few months and then enrolled in the Central School of Speech and Drama to study acting. At the same time, I began to get professional work in commercials on television and soon became quite well known. I went on to do theatre in the provinces, work on national television,and theatre in London. I have now been working as a professional actress in the U.K. for some 40 years in all mediums. I had the huge joy of transferring to Houston and then Broadway in a Tennessee Williams play I had done at the National Theatre in London-"Not About Nightingales" some years ago. It was great to get home! My private life hasn't been straightforward. I have been married twice, divorced twice. I have one beautiful daughter, who is herself now a successful actress, and a six year old grandson. I am now engaged and living with a lovely fellow and continue to work as an actress and continue to be quite a workaholic and generally hyperactive young middle aged woman! I toured in a production of "Anything Goes" and a new stage version of "Daisy Miller" and "A Touch of Danger" with Simon Ward recently and I am in the process of writing my autobiography. Last Christmas I appeared in something only the English understand! I played the Wicked Queen in the pantomime"Snow White" in Carlisle. This coming Christmas I am playing the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella in Basildon, Essex. I have just finished filming "Malice in Wonderland" starring Maggie Grace and next week start work on the film "Tormented".  I became a Brit last year so I am now a dual national! I have hugely fond memories of my time at Walter Johnson. My years in the U.S.A. seem far too distant Send Sandra a MessageSend Sandra a Message
