CATEGORIES: Alumni Profiles


Hi! I enjoyed receiving the newsletter and wanted to say hi to all those (now Emeritus) that I know. I graduated with a baccalaureate degree in Psychology and minors in math and music in 1964. Don Charles was my advisor as I became the second School Psychology graduate in July of 1966. I worked as a school psychologist in Boone County, IA, until my husband Duane finished his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at ISU in 1970. We moved to the Youngstown, Ohio, area where I spend another 27 years in the school psych field. I added special education adminitration to my school psych chores for the last four years before I retired in 1998. I have moved back to Iowa (on Big Spirit Lake) and am currently writing a doctoral dissertation in the area of Educational Leadership.

My husband Duane and I have a daughter Kelley, who was born in Ames, and who is married and lives in the Wichita, KS, area. Our interests (still) include sports car racing and singing. We love living at the Lake and enjoy “camping” in our 34′ Winnebago.
