Kitty Pechet teaches calligraphy here at the Center, and was recently profiled in the Globe for her many talents, including her role as a competitive surfer (all the more impressive when we learn she picked it up after 50). She’s a wonderful teacher, and a delight in person, too. From the article:
“Surfing has become a metaphor for life, my life” Pechet says during an interview at her spacious home in Cambridge, which she shares with her husband, Harvard University professor Dr. Maurice Pechet, a member of the medical school’s Board of Fellows . “You paddle out, turn around, choose a wave, and miss it or catch it. When you get up, you finish, fall off, turn around, and paddle out again.”
It’s a great article. You can (and should) read the whole thing here.
Kitty is off for the summer and will return to CCAE in the fall to resume her classes.
