I spent my freshman year at Allegheny and then transferred to Drew University in New Jersey. In addition to having transferred out, I was one of a small number of freshmen women who lived in Brooks Hall, so, though I had some friends in our class, I has as many or more in other classes. I may at some point come to a choir reunion – being in Chapel Choir is one of my best Allegheny memories.
I majored in political science at Drew University with minors in French and economics. I was very fortunate to participate in the first Drew semester in Brussels focusing on what was then called the “Common Market” – a wonderful experience.
After graduating, I spent a year in New York City then two- plus years in the Peace Corps in Brazil, where I still maintain some important personal ties. I got a Masters Degree in Education at U. Mass. and started working in admissions at Rutgers University. After about 8 years, I moved to Cornell University where at different times I worked in international student advising and admissions. I did both domestic and international recruitment travel through much of the world, and was involved in some professional activities that took me back to Brazil. I also adopted a baby daughter there in 1985. My daughter is now 31 and living in Los Angeles. Over the years I also had the opportunity to serve on boards of women’s groups, school committees etc. I’m now retired and living in Ithaca where I help a local Burmese refugee family and am active in the Unitarian Society of Ithaca, ( including singing in the choir).
