Personal Timeline: Charlene Zeddemore
Winston Zeddemore responds to an ad from a bunch of nutjobs calling themselves "Ghostbusters" and is hired by them. He promptly finds himself in a fight for the fate of the world against a hundred foot marshmallow man.

Sometime between 1983 and 1985, Winston is introduced to Kaila McMillan, a former coworker of Ghostbuster secretary Janine Melnitz. Winston and Kaila begin dating.

Ghostbusters Inc. is dissolved

December 20. Winston Zeddemore marries his longtime girlfriend, Kaila MacMillan, a museum curator.

After the break up of Ghostbusters, Winston and his wife move to Montana, and Winston gets a job piloting a small commutor jet.

Charlene Zeddemore is born late in the year.
Though at this point it is being established that Charlene is Winston and Kaila's oldest child, she is not necessarily their only one

Late in the year, the original Ghostbusters are reunited by the efforts of Janine Melnitz. Winston and his family return to New York in early 1998, and resume activities with the company. At some point by 2004, Charlene develops a crush on GBNY employee Roland Jackson.

Peter Venkman's family permanently moves back to New York; Charlene forms a close friendship with his daughter, Jessica.

Future Fate:
By 2023, Charlene is involved with her father's company in some capacity. She at the very least reports to GBI HQ on the status of the Eiffel Tower's containment system
One possibility is that Charlene is a founder, member, or advisor to a GBI franchise based in Paris. This has not been established, however
