Sometiems it seem that I've lived multiple lives. I started out a shy, bookish girl who bit her nails, did some work in community and semi-professional theater and pro/amateur ballroom dance, moved around the country (it's a great way to see it) with an ex-husband, came back to the DC area (where I grew up) after we separated. I decided to finally take my career seriously and joined the Navy Reserves for an enlistment. I also got two Masters Degrees and have more or less kept afloat professionally since then, working primarily in DOD and the Intelligence Community. I am a member of MENSA, still like to read, and sometimes play with art and silversmithing. I think I've come a long way, Baby!
