I attended Tufts University and received a B.S. in math and then completed a masters in applied math at Harvard University. Makes me laugh when I remember that first calculus test I took in Mr. West's class---D-. Showed him.
I have worked for about 30 years for Ciba-Giegy which became Ciba Specialty Chemicals which then became BASF. I have had positions in information technology, both technical and managerial, and in supply chain project management. I recently hung up my Blackberry cards and called it a career, retiring in June, 2010. I am checking out contract work as a project manager, if you know of anything.
My husband, Carl, retired this year as the Chief Operating Officer for the Bulova Watch Company. Now he is consulting in the luxury goods industry. Occasionally, I get a luxury good out of this....
We live in Stamford, CT, and are both active in community and synagogue volunteer activities. And now that we have more time, we are traveling more. We just returned from a great trip to Greece and Turkey. Next up---the Galapagos Islands.
I'm doing some coursework in interior design in NYC. Maybe I can parlay that into something fun and possibly profitable, eventually. I like to garden and cook and do all those Martha Stewart things. (She lives near us and has served as quite a role model....)
We see our kids a lot. Andrew and Melissa are in Manhattan; and Alyssa is in Somerville, MA. I used to miss Boston when we moved down here, but I have to say, there is nothing like the energy of Manhattan.
