After graduating Falls Church High School, I worked at Fairfax Hospital as a security
guard while attending NOVA. I was promoted through the years and eventaully attained
Division Director for Support Services at Inova Mount Vernon Hospital in 1991. After
leaving Inova, I worked briefly for Kaiser Permanente, mananging their security force for
markets in Cleveland/Akron, Atlanta, Baltimore and DC. After Sept. 11, 2001, I made
a career change of sorts and joined the Department of State's Diplomatic Security Service
as an inspector of Embassies and Consulates of their technical security systems. I
traveled to 35 different cities overseas in a span of 3.5 years. I have been to
places like Russia, Vietnam, Egypt, Israel, Italy, Malta, Romania, Bulgaria and Poland,
just to name a few. I consider this period of my life the most rewarding of my
career so far. I remain with DoS, but no longer travel.
I met my wife Sue at a Halloween party in 1978, and married August 1, 1981. She
is originally from Rochester NY. (see Scott's pictures)
We have three children, two girls and a boy,
all of whom are grown up. My son Michael, the oldest, is a History teacher
at . . . GULP . . . JEB Stuart, where classmate Pamela Borgotti (Jones) is Principal.
Daughter Jackie lives in Chicago, and after graduating from James Madison University
decided to take courses at Second City, where she aspires to eventually become comedy
writer. She lives 8 blocks from Wrigley Field, so being a big baseball fan, I
intend to take full advantage of this opportunity. Youngest daughter Erin is in her
junior year at Radford University.
We live in Springfield, VA and have a getaway mountain home in the Shenandoah Valley,
a.k.a. God's country, and a rental home, also in Springfield.
My favorite teacher was Harvey Cooper (Architectural/Engineering Drawing).

After graduating from Falls Church, I went to William and Mary and then on to
Medical College of Virginia-VCU for my degree in nursing. From there I went
to Virginia Beach, then the Eastern Shore of Maryland, then to the DC area to work
at the National Cancer Institute at the NIH, Bethesda. I worked in oncology
nursing for about 24 years in different capacities (and locations ) such as radiation
oncology but mostly medical oncology which meant giving chemotherapy.
I had met my husband in Huntsville, Alabama where my parents have been
for 30+ years. He worked for PPG so we moved all over the country - Charlotte, North
Carolina; Olympia, Washington; Lexington, Ky then to the Pittsburgh area (Go Pens - Go
Steelers!). We were married for 19 years. After getting divorced, I changed
my speciality to pulmonary. I now work for the University of Pittsburgh in asthma
research and am a certified asthma educator. In fact, I am on the national board
of directors of the Association of Asthma Educators and have gotten funding for some of
my own research. I remarried 5 1/2 years ago to a guy I met at Match.com. I
have a 25 yr old daughter who works and goes to school in Orlando and my son is a sophomore
at Pitt. My husband and I ride motorcycles and play a lot of golf - which doesn't
mean I am good at golf but I do love to play.
(see them) I enclosed are
recent except for a picture from my wedding in 2004. Some of you may remember my
parents so I enclosed a picture of them that was taken this past Christmas along with
my children. Yes, that is a bow in my hair in the Xmas picture that a friend took
at a Christmas party! - part of the fesitivities!!! I do enjoy life and the many
blessings I have been given!

Joy Napier Dorsey
Hello everyone, I'm Joy Napier Dorsey, I live in Hedgesville WV. I left Falls
Church High after my freshman year but grew up there and went to Westlawn Elementary
and Whittier Jr. High. I would have graduated there in 74' had I stayed.
have enjoyed the contacts I've had very recently since joining facebook with others who I
grew up with and don't remember well but would love to remember well. How exciting
it is to get a chance to hear from people from my past.
Best wishes, would love hearing
