Carol Crosier Segreti

Immediately after graduation, I attended Massey Business College in Jacksonville, Florida, after which I went to work at EMR in Sarasota as the Materiel Manager's secretary.  I met my husband, Adam Segreti, there (he was working for my then boss) and we married in November 1962.  We headed west in the fall of 1963 settling for a short time in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  Adam's contract engineering work kept us moving around the country for the next nine years.  We settled in the Dallas/Fort Worth area for good in the fall of 1972.  
I was a housewife until, in 1980, I enrolled at the University of Texas at Arlington, graduating in December of 1984 with a BBA in Accounting.  At that time, I went to work for Coopers & Lybrand, now Price Waterhouse Coopers.  (I passed the CPA exam at the first sitting.)  I was with C&L until October 1987 when I joined the Internal Audit Department of a client, Harris Methodist Health Services.  Adam and I were divorced in January 1989.  In September 1989, I went to work for General Dynamics which several years later became Lockheed Martin Aeronautics.  I spent the next 20+ years there retiring on January 1, 2010.
I have many interests, but my main passion is traveling.  I just returned from a 16 day trip to Antarctica and South America (Argentina and Uruguay).  Antarctica was my 7th continent visited - a milestone I never dreamed I would be able to achieve!!!  In the past 10 years, I have been to various countries in Europe any number of times, China, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.  I was in Scotland in October and will be leaving for Ireland on March 12.  We will be there over St. Partick's Day and yes, it was planned that way!!!  I've also been fortunate enough to be able to see much of what this great country has to offer, including Alaska.
I never had any children, but I currently am responsible for two Ocicats, one of which was recently diagnosed with diabetes.
