  1. Briefly, what have you done personally or professionally since high school?
  2. I completed high school and then attended Pitman’s training college in London. Upon graduating, I accepted a position as secretary to the manager of the Winter Garden Theater on Drury Lane, London. When I came to this country I was a faculty secretary at Northwestern University where my husband-to- be was in graduate school.

  3. How long have you lived in Raleigh/Cary/Durham?
  4. We have lived in Raleigh for 24 years. The main reason we moved here was the fact that our daughter and family reside here.

  5. What was your motivation for joining ALTA?
  6. My motivation for joining ALTA was after my husband died and when I stopped playing golf I had some daytime hours to fill and ALTA was just the ticket. I have met some lovely ladies and look forward to going into the shop as it’s not only a fun experience but I feel like I am doing something worthwhile to help our community.

  7. Please, tell us something about you we may not know or something about you that is unique or unexpected.
  8. I suppose over the eight years I have been a volunteer, I have spoken highly about our organization so now daughter Karen is about to become a member.
