Meet Villager Harriet Rogers
Harriet Rogers moved to DC in 1982 from her hometown of New York City, a place she never thought she would leave until she met the love of her life, Stephen, a lifelong Washingtonian who six months after meeting became her husband. They lived on Capitol Hill, where Harriet developed an appreciation of DC’s natural beauty and the dedication of many of its citizens to the ideals of a better America through public service.
Harriet worked in the marketing and advertising departments of several magazines, most notably as the Southern Advertising Director of Time Magazine’s science publication, Discover. After her husband died, she became one of the founding members of Capitol Hill Village in 2007 and served on their board for 3 years. In 2018, Harriet moved to the Kennedy-Warren and immediately contacted the Cleveland & Woodley Park Village to become a member and a volunteer.
About Villages, she said “I know how important relationships become as one ages and believe it’s the ideal place to meet people with similar interests who will enrich our lives as we navigate the new demands aging imposes. Villages are an extra ‘insurance policy’ for our security and happiness.”
