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.

About Me

I started at UTA the summer of 71, then moved on to UT School of Nursing at Fort Worth, graduated from there in 75.  Worked in Arlington for a year, then married (way too young!) and moved to Lawton Oklahoma.  Lived there for 7 years, getting a Masters in Nursing at OU.  Accepted a position at Frankfurt Army Medical Center in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit, and stayed in Germany for 7 years, having 2 kids in the process.  Divorced and moved to Washington State to continue to work for the Army, where I still live. 

Currently working as a Community and Population Health Nurse for the McChord Medical Clinic at McChord Field/Joint Base Lewis McChord (all new military type organization).  I can retire in 15 months and 3 days (but who's counting!)  Love what I do, but want to do less of it. 

Raised 2 kids as a single parent for 20 years (my ex died in 95), then married 2 years ago to the best thing that ever happened to me.... 

Have sung for 2 years with a Christian Choral group called Breath of Aire, (www.breathofaire.org).  I still say "Singing is Believing" 

My daughter Kate will 28 soon, is very beautiful, very smart, and very available (if anyone has a gorgeous loving son around),  My son John, 25, is currently in Tech School at Shepard AFB in Wichita Falls, training for maintenance on the B2. 

I travel back and forth to Texas frequently, to see my dad, other family and friends. 

I'm planning to attend the 40th reunion, as I've not been around or even know about the previous ones.  Sounds like the party recently was really fun.  I like fun!

About Me

After attending UTA on a basketball scholarship for one year, I chose to begin a career as a homebuilder. I also married Karen Thomas in 1974 and our daughter Kellie was born in 1976. In 1989, I decided to go into the mortgage industry as a loan officer, a vocation that I still pursue today. In 1998, Karen and I moved to a rural area of Argyle, where we still live with our horses and the abundant wildiife that habitate the property. My interests include enjoying the outdoors, tinkering with classic cars, and maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle.

Hi! I live in Frisco with my husband of ten years, Paul Vinyard, who is a busy owner of restaurants. We have a dozen grandchildren and I manage our real estate investments. We travel some for fun. He owns several antique cars that I love so we are learning when and where to go to local car shows. I still sing but only for fun and church. I hope everyone is good and look forward to visiting with yall at the reunion. Charla

About Me

Jambalaya! Guess that's a good description of my life - lots of ingredients, spicy and fun! After high school I was ready to be an "adult" and moved to Houston (single woman) and began a career in real estate. Started as a graphic designer (marketing) with a commercial r.e. developer and in 1974 moved to Dallas to work with Henry S. Miller (Commercial) Real Estate. Received Real Estate Broker's License and was asked to work in Henry's first Residential Real Estate office in 1981, and so began my Residential R.E. Sales Career. I met my husband Dave Marshall while on vacation to Acapulco in 1979 (he from Dallas/New Jersey); we married in 1980 (40+ yrs now). Son Matthew born in 1983, moved to London England for his Master's Degree at LSE and is now a British citizen (dual citizenship), lives and works in London as an Industrial Psychologist. Daughter Francel, born 1986 graduated Univ. of Texas in 2008, now living and working in Ft Worth, lives in Burleson. In 1991 my husband Dave and I were transferred to Tampa, Florida (he was in commercial property/casualty insurance industry) and I moved my career to the RE/MAX franchise system. We returned to Dallas in 1994 where I continued many more happy years in real estate with RE/MAX. In 2008 I realized, "why am I still working 24/7" - life's too short! We moved to Frisco Lakes Texas, I embraced Yoga and enjoyed a second career as a Yoga Instructor.  In my free time I am an artist in several medias and an avid reader, gardener, gourmet cook. Enjoying catching up with friends from childhood and can't wait to see everyone again at our AHS 50th Reunion in June 5, 2021!
