The company was sold in 1976 and she became a Consultant to the Fashion Industry by request of the then President, Leonard Joseph. As a production and design consultant, she worked with many identity and music production companies, as well as new startups.
While living in Tequisquiapan, she became involved with the Sierra Gorda Ecological Group and taught to help small communities to become self-sustaining. Still today she goes to Mexico twice a year to teach.
Now in her 70’s and living in San Francisco, she is engaged in many volunteer activities, Ruth’s Table, Artseed, SCRAP-SF, San Francisco Center for the Book, and FabMo. She also mentored at Bay High School in their Senior Program. She was past President of Friends of Calligraphy, and still a Council member, and presently a Master Educator for the Macy’s Fashion Incubator San Francisco.
