My name is Ann Smith (yes, that is my real name) and I'm a baby boomer planning for retirement. Married in 1980, I lost my husband of 28 years in 2009 due to a series of complicated health problems. I live in my husband's hometown of Westerly, Rhode Island with my two sons and two cats. My passions include writing the monthly newsletter for the Westerly Historical Society and singing with my church's choir. My extended family is scattered throughout five other states and we surely don't get to visit as much as we would like.
As a young adult I attended and graduated from Sarah Lawrence College with a B.A. in liberal arts. I pursued a career in finance and hold an A.S. from the New England College of Finance and an M.B.A. from the University of Phoenix. I was a Rotary scholar at the age of sixteen and became fluent in Spanish after living in Mexico City during the summer of 1971.
