what I do
Having passed a milestone birthday, I finally know who I am and what I do. I’ve said it informally for years, but never listened to my own words.
Professionally I am both a writer and a teacher. As a writer, I take a topic that fascinates me, do the research, and pull it together into a new whole. As a teacher I am able to make presentations in a form that listeners find easy to follow and understand.
Again and again after a presentation, someone will come and say, “From the topic, I thought this would be boring, but you made it so interesting!”
