Father of two sons, became a grandfather March 2019. Both sons seem to think I should be looking up to them! Just because they are 6’2” and 6’4”? And that they are smarter than me – just because they did very well in college and both have master’s degrees? OK, maybe they are correct on all counts. But you did not hear it from me. Older son is helping prepare young children, teaching elementary school. Younger son and his wife are both environmental scientists trying to protect our water resources.

After surviving (barely) four years with Bill & Mary in Williamsburg, I lived in Virginia Beach for ten years as a bank internal auditor. Promoted and transferred back to Northern Virginia. Soon after relocating I rebooted life with new wife and new career as CPA; both were very challenging! First son was born on April 15 to parents who were both CPAs! I tried to file for extension.

After too many years of missed family dinners and time with my sons, my older son “convinced” me that I needed another career change. Instead of accepting a position as CPA Partner, I gave my notice and started working as a contract CFO/Controller, initially with one of my former clients. I significantly reduced my commute to 13 steps to my home office. This provided much valued schedule flexibility (still working long hours, but under my schedule) and allowed my younger son to work on his homework on a table in my office. By the time my younger son graduated from high school, I was ready for career number four: CFO/COO for a small, local government contractor (an industry that I had intentionally avoided as CPA). I am currently trying to figure out “career” number five: Retirement and grandchild spoiler.

I  worked  in private industry for 10 years and then worked for the federal government for 31 years.  In 2014 I was offered a buy out and retired from the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.

My daughter works as a soil scientist for the Army Corps of Engineers and lives in Portland, Oregon. I try to get out there a couple times a year to see her and my grandson who is 5.

I live in Flint Hill, VA which is in Rappahannock County. I stay busy by going to the gym, lunching with friends, hiking, playing arena polo and fox hunting.

I'm pretty much a perpetual student starting with two years at William and Mary. Did finally get an associate degree in Ornamental Horticulture in 1999. Turns out Algebra and Chemistry are things you can actually use in real life.  Met my husband David in Flagstaff while going to Northern Arizona University 1973. He was one of the carpenter's building married housing. Moved back to Boise, where David grew up. Had two daughters - both grownups now with careers and everything. One Grandchild. He's graduating from High School in May. How is that possible? In Boise, we both went back to college, except David actually got a degree - in Accounting. He joined Morrison Knudsen 1977, a large construction company, and we started seeing the United States starting with a year in Hawaii rebuilding a military base. Ending in Arkansas distroying Chemical Weapons. Meanwhile I did whatever was available at the time - mostly Motherhood, College classes, Secretarial, Curves trainer, Plant Nursery salesperson, Botanical Garden plant inventory, City Tree enumerator. David died of a brain tumor in 2014.  I've been a parent caretaker  with my siblings since then. My Mom died in 2017 but my 94 year old Dad is going strong. I'm loving living in Colorado hiking in the wildflowers with my Dog Hansel and friends.  Currently buying Solar Panels and driving a hybrid not because I think we can stop "Climate Disruption" at this point but because I'd like to step out in my backyard and take a deep breath of clean air instead of whatever that stuff is I'm breathing and drinking.

After graduation I attended classes at Madison State College in Virginia, then on to Athens College in Athens, Alabama for two years.  I dropped out of Athens to join the Air Force.  I spent ten years serving in the Air Force, first in Washington D.C., then on to Denver, Colorado attaining the rank of Staff Sergeant.  I worked in the administrative field, but separated at ten years and joined the Air Force Reserves in the Adjutant Generals office as a paralegal.  Separated from the Reserves four years later.

I remained in the Denver Metro area working in the Real Estate field, then on to Communications with Ram Mobile  Communications where I became Sales Manager.  I formed my own company with two partners in the telephone field but left that venture after a year and went into the lending field as a Mortgage Broker when the Savings and Loan crises wiped out that industry.  I worked with a small full service  lender in the Denver area until I left to take care of my mother after my father passed away in 1996.

I became a licensed Mortgage Broker in Florida until I accepted a position with a legal firm, one of the Freddie Mac designated counsels in Florida.  I retired in 2001 and have lived in Florida ever since, trading the markets to keep me busy.

After W-L, I went to the University of NH for 4 years. My first year I thought I'd be a mechanical engineer, but after flunking calculus and physics, I took a clue and switched over to business, finishing with a BS in Administration. When I graduated, I had no idea what I wanted to do, so I got married early and bummed around for awhile. I eventually got a job in the world of banking and finance, but it never felt right, so in late 1979 I quit my job, left my wife, gave her the house and said adios to everything!

It took me about 2 years of free lancing before I got hired as a staff photojournalist for the News and Observer newspaper in Raleigh, NC and I ended up staying there for 32 years, the last several years as a photo editor. I retired in 2012 and live out in the woods of northern Durham County with my wife of 25 years plus two cats. 

The "NOW" photo is at my grand parents' cottages on Swanzey Lake, NH.
