MBA, The Thunderbird School (American Graduate School of International Management), 1975

What a journey! Since I left Prescott College, I have done many diverse things, in many places. I have lived in 5 countries and worked in 15.

For the past 14 years I have been helping clients in job transition and job performance enhancement. I came into this calling almost by accident, and I am grateful for the life experiences and skills that permit me to help others effectively.
Throughout the journey, I have been guided by what I learned at Prescott; that it is a journey, and don’t stop learning. In my roles as President of the Alumni Association and as a Trustee, I had the opportunity to continue my relationship with the Prescott mission. I am honored by the college’s consideration of me for this Desert Star recognition, and I am proud to be a member of the Charter Class of 1970.

"These roles have allowed me to give back some of what I have learned, and to help keep the flow of knowledge going to other groups of students."
