About Me

I graduated from UT School of Nursing Ft. Worth (now  UTA  College of Nursing) in 1975.  Spend ~ 20 years at St. Paul Medical Center in Dallas.   Received my Masters in Nursing at UTA .  I am a nurse practitioner working at Endocrine Associates of Dallas.  I am also a certified diabetic educator and adjunct professor with TWU -Dallas  nurse practitioner program.

 

I married Harvey in 1979.  We have 2 sons.  Matt is 26 y/o,  - Texas Tech  2007 .  He is an engineer at Cummins.  Nick is 21 y/o and a senior at Oklahoma State, majoring in engineering.   

 

Both boys played baseball in high school and we continue to be die hard Ranger fans, through thick and thin. Many of our vacations had been skiing in Colorado.   Over the past few years, we decided to head for the beach.  Cabo has been a great find. 

 

Hard to believe it has been nearly 40 years, time flies.

Looking forward to the 2011 reunion!!

I live in Cypress, Texas and have worked for Lone Star College System 10 years this July (2014).  I have three children, Jason  (35), Michelle (34) and Meredith (32).  I have four precious grandsons, ages 4, 3, 3, & 2.  I never expected to leave the Dallas/Ft Worth area but life has a funny way of taking you places when you least expect it.  I enjoy the Houston area but would like to move back to the Dallas area eventually.   You can take a girl out of Dallas, but you can't take Dallas out of the girl!

About Me

Hi all,

After AHS, I went to the University of North Texas with a music scholarship, graduating in 1976.   Studied flute and Renaissance chamber music at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Brussels.  (Put THAT on your resume:  Degree in Renaissance chamber music - Boy, that and five bucks will get you a cup of coffee!)  Spent the next 10 or so years playing flute and piccolo with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra and the Fort Worth Opera Orchestra.  


Married Jim Hutchins, AHS class of '68, in 1975 and we are still together some 35 years later right here in Arlington.  Guess I picked a good one, huh?


The next chapter in my life began in the late 70's/ early 80's when I met computers and fell in love.  There is something about musicians and computers - alot of us have made the switch woodwinds to networks!


Worked in Marketing & IT for a couple of different retailers in Dallas for the next 20 years (ugh, that daily drive back and forth up I-30).   I now own a small computer company specializing in custom databases, mobile applications and websites for retail stores.  (Doesn't everyone need an iPhone app??)  


When I'm not working, we enjoy our motorcycles and hiking in S. Utah.  We are looking to move there next year, not to retire completely, but maybe just slow down a bit!!


Looking forward to September 2011.

About Me

I graduated from UTA in 1976 with a degree in Geology and also married my college sweetheart Charlie Beeman.  We divorced 3 years later - no children.  A year later I married Tal Finley (who graduated from Sam Houston in 1971).  We were married for 14 years and had three wonderful boys - Tony, Dustin, and Jonathan. I then divorced Tal and raised my boys as a single mom.   I went back to school and got my teaching certificate.  I am currently teaching 8th grade science in Duncanville at Byrd Middle School.  I plan on retiring in two years.  I have not remarried since Tal and I divorced.  I am currently living in southwest Arlington.  I LOVE traveling to the mountains during the summer because it's cool there and I'm still not used to Texas summers!!
