Wow, what a resume but I have to ask:”What is your proudest moment in your career as a cat show judge?” She answered “There are actually two and both took place in New York City. One was being present on the stage at the New York Stock Exchange “Ringing of the Bell” celebrating CFA’s 100th anniversary as the world’s largest and oldest cat registry The second was judging in the first CFA /Iams Cat Championships at Madison Square Garden!”
“So now that you have always been so busy, what do you do here in Rockport?” “I am having fun with my friends, and am a member of the Aransas/San Patricio Master Gardeners, serving as their editor for newspaper articles. I am a docent at the Rockport Center for the Arts, and a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution in Corpus Christi, Texas where I serve as Chair of the Historical Preservation Award Committee.
