What a send-off to life LHS and my friends gave me! Somehow, everything I had assimilated prepared me for many of the experiences I had as a nursing student– birth, death, and everything in between. Hackensack Medical Center School of Nursing launched my career as a young nurse in the O.R. and the newly forming ICU’s.

The romance I experienced with class-mate, Bob Reiner, culminated in marriage in 1962. We moved to Wyckoff, NJ where we raised our daughters, Holly and Laurel. While Bob navigated corporate life, I, fortunate enough to be a full time mother, embarked on my Bachelor’s, then Master’s from NYU.

Living up to statistics, Bob and I were divorced in the late 80's. “Starting over” at 53, my younger daughter, her husband, and I started a medically related business in Maryland which is celebrating its 15th year. As a result, I live in the great little historic city of Annapolis where I can sail to my heart’s content!! Recently, my older daughter and her husband who live in Bernardsville, NJ, and I launched a business on Long Beach Island, NJ where our family history dates back to 1960.

A joy for me is being with my grandchildren, Devon, 11; Ariana & Abigail, fraternal twins, 10; and Peyton Jean, 8. They are my great teachers, and the source of much mirth.

Several years ago, I was “recruited” to swim at a National Meet, and got “hooked”! I’m continuing to swim, and serve on the Maryland Board of The United States Masters Swimming Association as Editor. I was ordained as an Interfaith Minister in 2000 and gained certification as a “Life Coach” this year. I love working with people who are challenged with health issues, who are searching for meaning, and who are looking to reinvent their lives.... especially as it pertains to living a “new” retirement.

The BEST to all of my classmates!!
