She and her husband relocated to Cologne, Germany where she assimilated to life in Europe and welcomed all four of her children. She continued to work in marketing and planning and eventually opened her own consulting business. After 10 years in Germany, she and her family moved to Brandon Township, not far from where she grew up.
