    Summary
    After a 35 year career as an in-house attorney for international companies, I am continuing my life of learning and helping others through community activities. As a docent for the Chicago Architecture Foundation, I have the opportunity to continue to learn about Chicago’s extraordinary architectural heritage and history and then share it with tour takers from around the world. I am also involved in the docent organization’s efforts to train new docents, refresh the knowledge of the community of experienced fellow docents and Docent Council, its governing group. Northwestern University’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute's peer led study group classes provide opportunities to explore new subjects and discuss issues with classmates who bring a varied and interesting range of educational and professional experience to the classes. I assist people who have lost their jobs in this troubled economy, using my experiences as a person who lost a job mid-career and as a former head of the human resources function of a major international food company. The counseling is provided through a faith based group and informal referrals during which jobseekers are helped in developing job search networking skills and strategies handling the emotions arising from job loss. My 35 year in-house legal career consisted of advising managers of two major international food companies in areas of international law, mergers and acquisitions, contracts, employment matters, food safety and litigation management. These projects took me to most parts of the world, including Australia, China, Europe, Latin America and South Africa. My family and I lived in the Netherlands for two years during one assignment.
