Work Experience

I went from being a preschool teacher to a first grade teacher, to an engineer’s assistant and part-owner of an engineering consulting company, to a fitness coach, to a full-time writer. I have a wealth and variety of work experience from which to draw, and it all contributes to what I do now. For more, see my Linked In profile.
