I love to learn. I love new information and old information, books, journals, other people’s passions. I’m fascinated by the personal perspective and conflict. I believe that knowledge is power.
I like to live near large bodies of water and places that do not require shoveling snow for survival.
I have a formal advanced education and massive unforgiving student loan debt.
I am a lifelong learner. Current daily reading interests include USDOL WHD, FLSA, FMLA, HR Analytics, HR Technology, SHRM, CPC, Statistics, R Programming, RStudio, Analytics, RStudio with ggplot2 and dplyr. Anything from R-bloggers. AI and how it relates to the World of Work. Management (theory both old and new). Also online learning from Udemy, Coursera, Lynda.com, Ed2Go, and Edureka. Also, Kindle Direct Publishing for self-publishing news and trends.
I completed an MBA in HR Management July 2015 from Excelsior College. I also have a BS in Business, Management, and Economics with a concentration in Information Systems from SUNY Empire State College. I have a 6-month certificate in HIT, the Health Information Technology, Practice Work Flow and Information Management Redesign Specialist program from the University of Hawaii Community Colleges. I studied Ray Optics for a stint and I taught myself how to sew, cook, garden, budget, and DIY like nobody’s business. I have become a logistics pro at moving a family across time zones.
I challenged myself to learn WordPress, Podcasting, Shopping Carts, Small Business Marketing, Amazon Seller (FBA), Shopify, eBay, FaceBook marketing, and USPTO. I have an insatiable need to learn as much as I can (because you don’t know what you don’t know) and continuously strive to make things better.
