July 22, 1953 Consultant Married

After graduation, I traveled a bit, worked the line at Chrysler, and got a biology degree from Grand Valley State, where I met Lorraine.  We worked in Grand Rapids as a med tech (me) and a teacher (her) before going to graduate school at Miami University in Ohio and changing careers to environmental science. 

Nixon’s election changed our plans.  Environmental jobs were limited and we stayed in SW Ohio until relocating to the Arizona Health Department in 1985.  I made Assistant Director of the department in 1990 but had "déjà vu all over again" when another crooked Republican won the gubernatorial election (he later resigned after a grand jury indictment).  We moved to a Seattle but it was a big mistake: never make a decision based only on the size of a paycheck.  Within a year, Plan B took me to Hawaii but that firm bankrupted 18 months later.  (Ever feel like you’ve got a monkey on your back that you just can’t get rid of?)

Lorraine was forward thinking and by then was the owner of a 17-month old third-party quality assurance consulting firm, so she hired me.  We incorporated and grew to 10 staff in 3 cities, doing specialized chemistry consulting.  But in 2003, she developed cancer and had the unholy trinity of radiation, surgery, and chemo.  Now she is fully recovered but we both wanted a career change.  

Today, she’s the COO at the YWCA, running the rape crisis center, a Family Court program for teens, a preschool, and “HealthyStart”, where social workers home-visit mothers of “at risk” children.  I made the business smaller but more fun by working with only 2-3 associates in Hawaii.  Recent jobs have included reviewing a lot of lab data for good science, a year on top of a mountain at NOAA’s Mauna Loa Observatory doing global warming research, lecturing university chemistry, and a half a year starting up and training staff in a marine science research lab.
