Ms. McIntyre initially intended to pursue a career in writing, but as an African-American woman she found the field closed to her. Earning a Bachelor of Arts in English from Oberlin College in 1972, she decided that she would take her passion for writing and combine it with an industry in which she could make a difference. She studied law at the Boston University School of Law, where she earned a Juris Doctor in 1977.
Throughout her career, Ms. McIntyre has worked to be an advocate for women and minorities, and to help be a mentor to people. Looking toward the future, she intends to get back into writing, whether it is in energy, as a consultant, contributing diverse voices to her field, and some fiction. In her free time, Ms. McIntyre enjoys yoga, golf, and reading.
