Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Barbara Gregory


After graduating from Lindenwood College, St. Charles, MO. and working a short time as a lab technician, I joined the Navy. My plan was to do two years active and then see how the plan was going. Well 26 absolutely great years later at the rank of Captain I decided it was time for a new plan. I retired and after several jobs as a government contractor I joined with another retired Navy officer and we started our own government contracting business. In five years we had gone from 3 employees to 70 and growing. However, I looked at "My Plan" and decided it was time for a change. In 2001 I sold almost everything, bought a 40' RV and spent about two years just traveling around this great country. Oh the stories I could tell.

I still have the RV but have settle down a bit. I am currently living in Fredericksburg VA which is a little over an hour south of Washington D.C. I then spent 11 years as a consultant to government contractors. that was enough of that plan. In February 2015 I once again decided to try retirement. It has now been a year and I find that I don't have time for a job. My time is split between the golf course and family genealogy. The current plan is to get my handicap down to 19 and complete two family genealogy books and a book on my great RV Adventures.

Life is good and I love my current "Plan".
