Dr. Smoot was a successful owner-operator of two McDonald’s restaurants in San Pedro, CA and after moving to Virginia, ran another successful McDonald’s in Williamsburg, VA, where she was one of the first female operators on the East Coast.
After selling her McDonald’s, she pursued her love of psychology. After degrees from William & Mary, Pepperdine, and CSPP, she had earned her Ph.D., which for the next 30 years she used to become a successful marriage and family psychologist.
She loved music and was a very accomplished singer. She also wrote a psychology book, “Maturation, The Adult Paradigm”.
