After Maumee HS, I graduated in 1971 from DePauw University with a BA degree in both Social Work and English Literature. I married and moved to Chicago where I was a social worker for 10 years. My ex-husband's job then brought me to Ann Arbor, Michigan, where I have remained ever since and where I have worked 28 years for the University of Michigan. I'd actually planned to retire in 2009, but my old department where I worked nearly 15 years ago for nearly 12 years called me and offered me such a fun position as director of alumni relations, and part-time no less! This has been the perfect balance for me. I've always loved working in the medical field, so being back in the Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery at UM is truly an honor, as they are the top department at the UM Health System, and one of the top programs in the country. My husband, Peyton, and I WILL retire in 2011 though, and are looking forward to a new chapter in our lives. This past year we became first-time grandparents and are loving that role, and are looking forward to travel, more community service, and leisure time with our kids! We hope to eventually relocate to North Carolina; avid gardeners, bikers, and hikers, we'd life to leave the flat and gray midwest for the beauty of some mountains and a longer growing season.
