Occupation Health Administrator of a Private K-8 School
Children Nicole Rene, April 1977
Hadley Whitney, May 1980

We are back in the KC area and so happy. Settled in the Overland Park area. Purchased a house and made the arduous move from the east coast and profess to never move again.

I graduated from Oklahoma University with a BS in nursing and married my Navy Man 11 days after he returned from a year of sea duty in Viet Nam in the Gulf of Tonkin.
Buddy started a three year Dermatology Residency and I began my career as a pediatric nurse, both at Bethesda Naval Hospital in Maryland.
Our daughter Nicole Rene was born in 1977 and our son Hadley Whitney in 1980.
Buddy retired from the Navy with 11 years active duty and an additional 18 years in active reserves. Buddy retired in Oct 2014. Kim retired from a full career as a pediatric nurse just prior to our move. We took retirement seriously and planned like we were applying to college. Lots of research and attention to how we visualized this next chapter. Our move to the KC area provided the spark to change almost everything that was familiar and safe to we are truly enjoying ourselves.

Our Nicole is a veterinarian that completed 3 years of specialty training in Exotic Home Pets. Nicole returned to domestic soil in early 2011, after residing/working for 18 months in Hong Kong. She was employed as the only Board-Certified-Avian Specialist in that country. In March she was appointed as the Chief of Exotic Companion Animal Medicine and Surgery at the Veterinary Hospital at the University of Penn. School of Veterinary Medicine. (What a mouth-full) Nicole was married to TJ Tyson July 6, 2013. We could not have asked for better weather as their wedding took place on the beach in Sanibel Island, Florida. Since their marriage Nicole works at UPenn two weeks/ month and then returns to Cleveland the remaining two weeks of the month to be with TJ who is an electrical engineer. They are making plans to live together full time in a place that offers employment for both of them. Both of them love to travel and both do not stay in one place very long. So who knows where they will end up next.

Our Hadley is a physician who completed 5 years of residency as a Urological Surgeon at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. In July 2011 he began a Fellowship in advanced training in reconstructive urology. He was notified in Aug 2011 that he passed his Boards. Yipeee! In July 2010, Hadley and Kristen Rae were married in Georgia. After completing a 12 month Fellowship in Urological Trauma and Reconstruction at Emory, Hadley and his wife moved to Kansas in 2012. Hadley completed a 2 year fellowship in Urological Oncology in July 2014 at KU Med. They were so happy in the KC area and they were pleased when the Urological department at KU Med. offered him a staff position in 2014. This is what started our trek back to KC as much of my family resides here.

Hi Joyce… Here's the link to the fundraiser for Betsy. Sadly we are not going to be in town and I'm extra disappointed because it might've been the opportunity to reconnect with you. I would be so grateful if you could spread the word around Paola area in order to generate attention for this. Thanks so much!

Jim… I don't think there's many Jim Buzalas' and I don't know if you knew Betsy but it means so much to me and to her that you made a donation. I never get on this website and I never know how to use it so if indeed it was you I'm glad it went through. Thanks so much!
