Industry Education
Occupation Retired
Location Marietta, GA, United States
Introduction Leaving education after many, many years, I wondered what I was going to do with the rest of my life? I felt a need to stay connected to education so I renewed my educator's certificate and began volunteering in my local school. I even worked part-time for two years with a book publishing company conducting workshops for teachers and attending textbook adoption seminars. Around this time, my sister also left education (notice I don't use the word retired?...sounds old) that opened the door for traveling. We've (my sister, my brother-in-law, and myself) been to Europe four times....I draw the line at China and cruises. Can't do boats and I really don't like Chinese food. During these trips I began taking millions of images. Then came the photography classes that led to Elements that demanded a bigger and better camera, resulting in better processing in CS3 and even better processing in Lightroom and on and on. Oh, I forgot to mention that two summers ago I was an extra in the movie, We Are Marshall. Being a Marshall graduate the movie had special meaning to me. What an experience.
