I graduated from Mount Holyoke College. I was married shortly after finishing college & stayed home raising our two children for about 12 years. I then went to work in the Marketing Department for a catalog company in a neighboring town. I eventually divorced, started commuting to New York City (working for another catalog company), & remarried. I’ve been retired for about 15 years. Sometimes I miss working, but I definitely don’t miss the commute! Now that I am retired, I enjoy gardening, cooking & reading

I have seven children & (as of right now) six grandchildren. I worked for the Federal Government for 36 years. I started at the Bedford (MA) VA Hospital then transferred to Hanscom AFB. I later worked at Fort Devens until it closed in 1996. I retired at that time as the last Command Secretary of Fort Devens. I am retired but currently help out as a home provider for a disabled individual. I now spend more time enjoying family, friends, reading, computer work, & reconnecting with people from my past.

I graduated from Boston College with a BA in fine arts & from Salem State College, School of Social Work with a Masters in Social Work. I’m licensed to practice in NH & VT. I’ve worked in public & private agencies as a social worker for 40 plus years. In recent years, I’ve also done some GAL work representing children in various courts here in NH. I live around the corner from my daughter & her family & love having them so nearby. My two grandsons bring immeasurable joy to my life. I enjoy spending time with my sisters, Jane, Mary, & Nancy & with friends, old & new. I love the rocky coast of Maine in Biddeford. I’ve discovered auctions, audio books, my MacBook etc. I’m working about 15 to 20 hours a week as a clinical social worker & occasionally as a guardian ad litem. I like having a mix of work & free time & can’t imagine not working at all, at least for now.

I attended Texas Woman’s University, Boston University (graduated in 1963) & Stephen F. Austin University (Master’s Degree in 1985). I have always taught school from K-12, primarily high school 9th grade reading, study skills & speed reading. I have two children (a girl & a boy). Since retiring I’ve become active in politics & represented my area at the Republican State Convention twice. Due to health reasons, I participate more in things locally such as attending plays, church activities & spending time with friends. I wish I could see you all. I only lived in Andover for four years or so, but truly consider it my home.

I went to Carnegie Institute of Technology, but that didn’t work out so I joined the U S Army (1961-1965), learned Russian & worked as a translator in Germany. My wife (44 years married) & I graduated together from Berkeley in 1969 with degrees in Social Welfare. In the early 70’s, I was a photographer in the Bay area of California. After that, I worked in the Post Office to pay off student loans. In 1974, we moved to Maine & built (with our own hands, from scratch) our house & gardens. Building was so satisfying that I worked for five years as a builder. I worked as a counselor with troubled teens for several years & for several more years again in the Post Office. We adopted our son in 1977. Late in the 1980’s, I went back to school to become a teacher. Since then, I have worked as an elementary school special education teacher in Maine & in Florida. Now, I have retired & enjoy remodeling our American Craftsman bungalow & continuing with photography.

I still love design, painting, reading, history (hated it in school), gardening, sewing for my grandchildren & travel (when I get a chance).
