Chair, Toulouse Chapter, Democrats Abroad France

I'm a founding member of the Toulouse Chapter, set up during the GWBush administration, as the war on Iraq was mobilizing Americans across the globe. For many years I was Chair--and have come back to this role as the Trump Administration is a clear and present danger to our nation. All hands on deck!

I was the prime mover behind the worldwide "Bridges for Obama" campaign when he first ran for the nomination in 2008. More recently I edited the 50th anniversary book for Democrats Abroad and am admin on both the DA Toulouse and DA France Facebook pages.

I'm a lifelong Democrat. I worked with former Governor Pat Quinn in Illinois on progressive democratic reforms back in the seventies. I served as deputy press secretary to Daniel Patrick Moynihan when he ran and won his Senate Seat. Before moving to Europe in 1987, I lived in Manhattan and worked in TV news, mainly as a writer and producer for ABC News, writing for Peter Jennings, Sam Donaldson and Hughes Rudd.

My British husband and I moved permanently to our home in the Tarn in 1999.
