Residing In: Long Beach, CA USA
Spouse/Partner: John Coonis
Occupation: Executive Director of Catholic School Accrediting Agency
Yes! Attending Reunion

I have spent my entire career in Catholic education, first as a teacher, then spent 17 years as a high school principal and also served as Superintendent of Secondary Schools for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Instead of retiring at 65, I signed a contract for a new position as the Executive Director of the Western Catholic Educational Association, an agency that oversees the accreditation of the Catholic schools in the eight western states and US Territory of Guam.

I love this new job and it allows me to get to Sacramento a bit more often to see my awesome 91 year-old mother who lives on her own and is doing great. She retired from her full-time job as a finance manager for a law firm just a few months shy of her 90th birthday! I'm not sure I will want to match her record, but I don't really see retirement in my near future as I am still really enjoying my work.
