She served her country working for the American Red Cross during the Vietnam War. She then joined Frontier Airlines where she became the Director of Marketing and with Brighton DECA started the first airline training program. She joined New York Life for a short time before her love of the sky and travel led her to United Airlines. She was an integral part of the United Airlines move to DIA, the launch of the 777, and the design of the new flight attendant service center in Chicago. She retired in 2005 to spend more time with family and live life to the fullest. She has a deep faith and has enjoyed being active in church, bible studies and serving the Lord throughout her life. Locally, she has been a member of the Zion Lutheran Church and most recently the Westminster Presbyterian Church where she served as a ruling elder. Her love of adventure has taken her across the world on special trips with her family; creating memories to last lifetimes.
