I'm sorry. I wrote nearly the entire 1000 words and a mis-stroke sent the entire piece into some void. I don't have the patience to reconstruct the entire bio at the moment. If I continue my subscription, I will definitely complete this information. For now, know that I am a retired university professor. I retreated from one of the business schools in the Cal State system to join my husband, also a professor, who took a position in 2003 at Northcentral U in Prescott, AZ. Everything from that point to 2007, when I retired, involved frequent commutes to/from SoCal to AZ. Eventually it onlmade sense for me to retire. My areas of teaching and research are diverse: psychology, management, research methods, statistics, computer applications, entrepreneurship. I am widely published, have presented numerous papers at the important professional associations in my fields. I am an excellent writer, editor, and speaker. I have a stepson with a growing family. And two decidedly uncat-like cats.
