I’ve taught online classes with Axia for a while now, and I taught videoconferenced basic computer classes to adults while I was earning my master’s degree. My past jobs have included technical writing, clinical trial contract negotiation, web design, public relations, data analysis, and a whole host of other things that fall under “other duties as assigned.” I’m trained as a bureaucrat, believe it or not. I have a Master’s in Public Administration, which doesn’t actually do me a whole lot of good here in West Virginia – although, I imagine that in Washington, D.C., I could do quite well. 😉 But, like many West Virginians, I’m unnaturally attached to my land, and wouldn’t consider living anywhere else.
In my spare time I enjoy reading. I also enjoy playing with digital pictures, cooking, sewing, knitting, and other various domestic arts, which I’m sure my husband appreciates to no end. We have 3 spayed/neutered dogs, 4 spayed/neutered cats, one little fishtank, and 2 reptiles. My husband and I adopted his niece, born in 1991, and we also have a daughter born in the fall of 2007. I fit the stereotype of the absent-minded professor to a tee!
