Little did I think that 50 years would roll by so quickly! When I left UW I went to Toronto, Canada to work as a school social worker. After a year there I returned to Madison, got married and worked in the Black Earth/Mazomanie schools for several years. We moved to the Cedarburg area where we raised three children and I continued to work as school social worker at Hartford High School for several years. However, the medical field kept lurking in my thoughts. After 9 years when we moved to the Boulder Colorado area, I completed a four year Nursing Doctorate degree. The combination of nursing and social work provided a wonderful backdrop to serve the fail elderly as an advanced practice nurse for over twenty years. My picture is hanging in the Denver Housing Authority’s Wall of Fame when I received that award in 2012. Social work and nursing gave me the skills for a satisfying career.
Fond memories of classmates and professors always stayed close at heart. Among them, Imogene Highbie, Dr. Bob Gale (we were lifelong friends), Harriet Zucker, Mary Stites, Ron and Mary Ellen Kondrat, and Sue Fenniman.
