I grew up in Falls Church and attended St James School. During my O’Connell years, I met my future husband Frank Sando at a party in Falls Church with my good friends Bobbie Marr and Mary Reynolds. Upon graduating from O’Connell, I worked at the Department of Justice in the Patent Office. Pat Vadnais and I worked in the same office for a couple of Patent attorneys downtown. I decided to go to Mount Aloysius for an Associate of Arts Degree. I was still dating Frank who was attending Mt. St. Mary’s College in Emmitsburg, MD.
I married Frank in August of 1968 and we lived in Williamsburg while he completed William & Mary Law School. We loved our life in Williamsburg even though it was short lived. During this time I worked at Fort Eustis in Newport News. We ended up at Ft Campbell, KY. A friend and I established a Pre-Kindergarten school on Post and that kept me busy during our three year stay.
In 1972 we returned to the Northern VA area and have lived in Vienna since 1977. We have two children, Sarah (1972) and David (1976). Our daughter lives in Fairfax and works in Reston and our son lives and works in San Francisco.
In 1984, I began my own Art Consulting business, working with local Designers planning art, framing design and installations for both corporate and residential settings. I thoroughly enjoyed my work and meeting so many wonderful clients. After 27 years I retired in December of 2011. Since then I have enjoyed golf, tennis, travel and genealogy research.
Our son David and his wife Jasmin had a beautiful baby boy on August 16, 2016. Our first grandchild!
