About   (request update)
I was born in a wonderful Christian home. My sister was accepted to the KC Art Institute but didn't get to attend because they kept raising the tuition. Our father had a cerebral hemorage in April 1966. Our father had theraphy but never spoke again. My parents used to listen to the radio and I won $1,350.98 three weeks before I graduated!

I went to NWMSU and he passed away at the end of my first semester. My mother encouraged to complete my degree.

I began to work, got married, and we had a daughter! When she was 3, her father left us. I raised her for the next 21 years by myself (he helped financially). She did great in school and attended the college of her choice (MU) and got the degree of her choice (BS/Marketing). She has worked fro the same international engineering firm for 13 years! She has always wanted to work in sports.

I began an MBA in April 1996 and stepped out of the Program at Baker University in August 1996 after three classes due to the merger at work and having to place my mother into a nursing home!

I have worked in CO (2000-2002) and CA (2006-2008) and returned to the Midwest both time due to the economy!
Current Whereabouts:
Looking for a job! I left my Legal Secretary position at the end of April 2008 and relocated back to the Midwest due to the recession beginning to affect the Bay area! I'm still looking for a job!
Life & Professional Aspirations:
I have worked for corporate executives and senior partners at corporations and law firms since 1972! I still want an MBA so I can get into management and make the world a better place!
