Profile Updated: June 22, 2010
Residing In: San Mateo, CA USA
Spouse/Partner: Valmar Figueiredo
Occupation: Food Development
Children: Jenni (1981) graduated from UC Santa Barbara and currently lives in New York City and works for L'Oreal. More… Her husband Dan is from San Jose so we're looking forward to their move back!

Nikki (1983) graduated from UC Los Angeles and is about to start Nursing School at San Francisco State!

Emily (1988) just graduated from UC Santa Barbara two weeks ago and is planning to go to Brazil to finish learning Portuguese...she graduated with a Global Studies Major and Minor in Portuguese.

Dan (son-in-law, Jenni's husband, born 1978) graduated from UC Berkeley and works for Edelman Digital in NYC.

Sandy (the yellow lab) is almost 100lbs of all job and uninhibited emotion....and still jumps on people to say hello at age 8.

After graduating from Mills, I attended San Francisco State University with a Sociology and Accounting Major. I met my husband Valmar when I was 19 and was so intrigued with this exotic Brazilian, got to know his five sisters very well, visited Brazil and fell in love with the family, culture and we decided to get married. Once we were married I went to Brazil for the 2nd time and decided it was not where I wanted to live permantly (but visit regularly) so I now live 4 miles from where I grew up and my husband runs his business from the US.

After college, I worked in my father's doctors office for 20 years which allowed me to be involved with my kids, volunteer at school and other philanthropic organizations. We also spent time traveling in Europe, Asia and South America (my husband is from Brazil). We love going to Tahoe and Santa Barbara and always spending time with our family! Now I work for Mattson and explore my love of food with food development.

I can't wait to see everyone at the reunion and catch up!
