Yes! Attending Reunion

After graduating from high school, I attended Purdue University in Indiana where I twirled with the Purdue All American Marching Band. I twirled at Radford my freshman year before joining the Rhythmettes drill team my sophomore year. I graduated from Purdue in 1980 and became a flight attendant for Delta Airlines and lived in downtown Chicago. Later I lived in Miami and Salt Lake City. In 1986, I married my college sweetheart and moved to Shorewood, Wisconsin (right next to Milwaukee). Our first son, Collin, was born in 1991. In 1996, we adopted our son, Devon, and two years later our daughter, Katie. Our oldest son has autism and to learn more about the disability, I returned to college in 1999 to get a Masters degree. After September 11th being a flight attendant was not so fun anymore, so I remained in school and got my Ph.D. in education. I retired after 25 years with Delta and am now an associate professor. Big career change! I teach graduate school at the University of St. Thomas in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota. I am in the Department of Special Education and specialize in Autism Spectrum Disorders.

School Story:

When my family left Hawaii, Rick Scott (class of 1976) promised that he would come visit me in Indiana. About a year after we moved, he showed up at my aunt's house in very rural Wheatfield, Indiana. He had quite an adventure tracking me down as my family's home had burnt to the ground shortly before his arrival. He stayed for one meal and then was on his way across the U.S. visiting friends here and there.

Another great story! I lectured to my daughter that she should be listening to me when she was in 8th grade because she wouldn't even remember any of these kids giving her advise when she was an adult. A couple of years ago I went to a conference on the Big Island and got to have a lovely Hawaiian meal and spend the night with Pat Breault. My daughter asked Pat how long we had known each other and she said "since 8th grade."
