Chair Democrats Abroad Lyon
I became a member of the Democratic Party in 1968, another very turbulent time. I believe in the values that Democrats have fought for throughout these years. I have lived in Texas, California, Switzerland and England; my husband and I now live in Jassans-Riottier north of Lyon. I studied political science at the University of Texas at Austin and graduated with degrees in Education and Fine Art. I have worked as a public school teacher and as a costumer in the motion picture industry. I am now retired but continue my fine art studio practice in which I often address social political issues. As chair of the Lyon chapter of Democrats Abroad I am working with our board to establish an active group that supports the interests and needs of Americans in our area and to promote the values of the Democratic Party.
