If you really want to get to know me, here are more details about my background!
My detail-oriented nature helped me to excel in (and enjoy!) school. I have a B.A. in French (my mother was French and I love the language) from Drake University, and two Master’s degrees.
My M.P.A. (Public Administration) from Drake University led to a fabulous four-year stint in Federal Government in Washington, DC (where I grew up). It started with my being one of 250 graduates selected from 950 applicants across the U.S. to participate in President Carter’s newly created two-year Presidential Management Internship Program in 1978—designed to bring new, qualified talent into Federal service.
Then I shifted gears to move into the private sector and earned my International M.B.A. in 1983 at INSEAD—an intensive 10-month business degree program in Fontainebleau, France. (Have I mentioned that I love France?) INSEAD, the European Institute of Business Administration, was among the top five business schools in the world at that time, and it was a truly memorable experience.
Armed with my degrees, I was invited (which is very correct for my Human Design Type) to run the Customer Care Department of the first non-wireline cellular telephone service company in the country—Cellular One of Washington/Baltimore—in early 1984. I was promoted to Vice President of Customer Care within six months of being hired. There I created a flagship customer service department copied by many subsequent cellular telephone companies. I also helped to define the data processing standards that enabled billing for the first inter-system cellular roaming.
After that, I helped create business management software for cellular telephone companies, co-founded a consulting firm serving cellular telephone companies, and provided consulting to several Latin American pager companies.
Then I gravitated to business and accounting management, becoming a certified QuickBooks Pro Advisor and providing an experienced business perspective in the set up and maintenance of QuickBooks accounting software for managing small businesses.
