Her father is chairman of the Senate Banking Committee and her step-father is editor and publisher of the Madison Capital Times.
Mrs. Zwerner, an alumna of The Masters School, Dobbs Ferry, N.Y., holds a B.A. in history from Georgetown University and a B.S. in allied health sciences from George Washington University School of Medicine. She is a physician's assistant at the George Washington University Hospital where her husband is completing his final year in obstetrics and gynecology. Dr. Zwerner graduated from the State University of New York at Buffalo and the Georgetown Medical School.
