After graduating from Ohio State with a degree in political science in 1967, I moved to Washington for what I thought would be a couple of years. Thirty-three years later, I retired from the federal government, having spent my career working on various domestic programs. During that time, I also completed a Masters Degree in administration at George Washington University.

Since retiring in 2000, I have become active in an organization that works with diplomats from other countries who are posted to Washington. Through this work, I have made wonderful friends from around the world. I’ve had the opportunity to travel in Scandinavia and Italy with Swedish diplomats and am getting to know the languages (it’s really hard when you’re our age) and the cultures of Japan and Turkey through the organization’s programs.

I also enjoy cooking, bridge and traveling.
