Description:

"Are you focusing on the future to plan your career or advance from where you are? The future has essential points to consider, but a look into your past may be helpful. Did you know some of your planning has already been done for you? I will discuss this and share thoughts about “Lessons Learned Along The Way” during my working life."

Born during the Second World War, attended private schools and then public, started working at fourteen to help support my family, and graduated from High School in the bottom half of my class. On to Junior College, then earned a B.A. in Psychology and an M.A. in Psychology (With Distinction). Along the way served in VISTA and the Peace Corps (Ethiopia), before starting a thirty-five career in Student Affairs at Chico State.

Some other descriptors of what I’ve done… Business Owner, Salesman, Community Developer (Rural and Urban), Gas Station Attendant, Microfilm Worker, Malaria Eradicator, World Traveler, Head Resident, Director of Housing, University Vice President, Author, Teacher, Trainer, Consultant, Grant Writer, Senior Citizen Center Developer, Golfer (sort of), Husband, Father, Grandfather, Genealogist, Retiree and loving it, but…

Upon retiring, my volunteer work began again. I assisted the Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorders program on organizational matters and wrote a business plan for them. Then last year I went back to Kindergarten…to help children with reading.
