My thirty years of work experience consists of the following:
(1) fifteen years as a faculty member for three major state universities, eventually specializing in writing about health and medicine, and
(2) fifteen years as a senior technical editor for a Fortune 500 company.
My education and employment have taken me from the Midwest (Wisconsin and Iowa) to the Southeast (Louisiana, Tennessee, and Florida).
Several years ago, I chose to reclaim the bliss with which I started my career by becoming an independent scholar.
I am now seeking publication for my book about medical education in the United States during the latter half of the twentieth century.
The best advice that I've heard recently? "Never allow success get to your head. Never allow failure get to your heart."
