Can you please tell us a little bit about yourself? Some fun facts and anecdotes from your life.
I am middle of seven children in a large Irish-Catholic family.
I have been married to Jim— my very best friend and college sweetheart —for over 35 years. We’ve raised three lovely children—Brennan, Katie, and Daniel—who are now out on their own, living their own lives.
I graduated with a degree in electrical engineering and computer science from UC Berkeley, and MBA from St Mary’s College. I started my career in Silicon Valley as a semiconductor design engineer, most recently a management consultant on the human-centered design of software products and services. I led two different consulting businesses for over 16 years and have experienced the roller coaster of joy and stress that accompanies small business ownership.
As a child, I was a competitive swimmer and spent countless hours in the pool and at the beach. As an adult I enjoy my various social clubs. I have run a boo club for 30 years, two gourmet-cooking groups, I sing in chorale group and play in a Bocce league. I enjoy travel and host many social events. Recently I publish a book on how to plan for the last third of your life call Encore, Living Your Life’s Legacy.
