A Little About Me

I   have   what   some   would   call   an   eclectic   background   --   others   might   say   I   haven't   made   my   mind   up   about   what   I   want   to be   when   I   grow   up.   Let's   just   say   I   am   leaving   my   options   open. As   Forest   Gump   once   said,   "Life   is   a   box   of   chocolates..." and I love the endorphins we get from chocolate! My   background   is   varied,   starting   with   a   BS   and   a   first   job   in   social   service,   then   mental   health,   substance   abuse counseling,   then   as   a   counselor   at   a   community   college,   and   lastly   in   vocational   rehabilitation.   My   last   position   in   that field ended when the CA legislature eliminated the vocational rehab component from the Workers Comp system. Finding   all   my   employment   opportunities   curtailed   by   government   cuts   in   funding,   I   went   back   to   college   to   earn   a   BS   in IT,   specializing   in   back   end   web   site   programming.   I   had   been   designing   web   sites   for   many   years,   originally   to   promote   my side   business   of   Arabian   horse   breeding,   then   later   for   small   business   clients.   My   involvement   with   the   Imprinting   Foundation   led   me   to   exploration   of   web geospatial   components.   To   further   assist   them   in   their   goal   of   agricultural   sustainability,   I   began   my   MS   studies   in   GIS   with   the   eventual   goal   of   embedding interactive maps into web sites, as well as performing geospatial analysis. This   web   site   completed   my   requirements   for   my   MS   in   GIS. As   of   8-8-18   I   am   currently   working   for   Northrop   Grumman   as   a   web   site   developer,   since   October 2017. I am always interested in positions in GIS that are in the Central Coast CA area, or where I can work remotely.
