I guess you could describe me as a retired urban professional. I spent most of my career in the transit industry managing hi-tech telecommunications centers and serving on national panels in the furtherance of advancing transportation technology in the USA. Then both my parents became very ill and, as an only child, I found myself moving from my beloved Washington, DC to help them in AZ. They have since passed on, so I am now living in GA and enjoying the benefits of retirement in the deep south.
I have an adorable Shih Tzu who is a certified therapy dog, which enables us to volunteer at hospitals and senior homes to help people while they are recovering from an illness or operation. And I am active in the Atlanta Writers Club and finishing my first naughty novel that I hope to have published someday so that you will have something to read on you next vacation at the beach. Would love to hear from any and all fellow BHS graduates.
I graduated from Kent State University in 1971. I took a year off after my junior year to study at Pahlavi University in Shiraz, Iran (renamed Shiraz University after the fall of Reza Pahlavi) as a foreign scholar then returned to KSU to finish my senior year.
I went on to do two post-graduate degrees -a Master's program in Communications at American University and one in Management from George Washington University - both in DC.
