After OPRF, attended/graduated from Bradley University in Peoria, IL, with a Bachelor of Music Ed degree. Taught elementary music for 4 years in Lake Bluff, IL, while getting my Masters of Music at Northwestern. Through a mutual friend of dear classmate Priscilla Mims, I met my husband David Boggs, who was getting his MBA at Northwestern.
The rest is history – fell in love, married and moved out east (closer to his family) – and we’ve lived in the Boston area since then. Raised 2 sons – one of whom lives in Austin, TX; we visit our favorite “other” city as often as possible!
In Boston, I took a management job working in sales for “The Phone Company” – AT&T at first, then New England Telephone and its various "morphifications" into what is now Verizon. Left Verizon awhile back and continued to sell telecommunications/cloud services for an IT firm based out of Rhode Island and then Virginia, the last 10+ years or so working from home and selling to businesses in New England. Planning on retiring soon!
For fun, we enjoy traveling & planning trips (our favorites recently have included exploring various parts of Germany & Austria). We spend a week each summer on a chain of lakes in The Adirondacks of NY State – heaven for those who love nature, hiking, watersports, available services but no crowds. Hobbies include running, pilates, swimming, Qi Gong, dancing (swing and most recently Country 2 Step), music (piano and voice), cooking and gardening, including growing our own hops and brewing our own beer!
