I’ve been ahead of the curve on jobs all my life. I have been working for 50 years, but I didn’t stick with one thing for more than 17 years. That’s what work and life are supposed to be like now. But back when I started you were expected to find a job and stay until you retired and got the gold watch. No thanks.
I’ve worked in manufacturing offices (purchasing and customer service), retail stores (sales and merchandising), food service (wait staff and supervisor), and television (continuity writer, traffic manager, sales research specialist). Those are the indoor jobs. I’ve also worked outside – several summers at Boy Scout and Girl Scout resident camps, as Business Manager, Health Officer, and Camp Director.
My most recent and longest lasting job was the 17-year career as a full-time instructor in Economics, Critical Thinking, and Logistics at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College in Green Bay. I retired in 2013, at least in part because I got sick. How I got better and what I do now is what this website is all about.
Between and among these experiences, I’ve been a student and/or a teacher all my life, amassing over 200 graduate and undergraduate credits. I have a BA in Economics from St. Norbert College in DePere, Wisconsin, an MBA from UW-Oshkosh, and an MS from UW-Whitewater. In 2006, she earned 12 graduate credits in Business and Finance at La Trobe University in Bundoora, Australia. I also earned certification as a C.P.M. from the ISM (Institute of Supply Management, formerly National Association of Purchasing Management), and certification in the Basics of Supply Chain Management from APICS (American Production and Inventory Control Society. Now I learn the new way, through online webinars, podcasts and courses. I am learning how to teach that way too, so I can help you solve your life and health challenges.
I live on Moody Lake north of Suring, Wisconsin, with my husband Don. We like to swim and fish and garden in the summer. In the winter, we enjoy the snow outside, and then we come in and read by the fire and follow the Green Bay Packers. We have four grown children who reside in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Australia, and four grandchildren.
