I am going through what most would call a career change. My background competencies include being a Gemologist (Diamond and colored stone appraiser) series 7 and 63 license (Investment banker) Army soldier and Air Force Airman, corporate administrator and entrepreneur to name a few. Currently I am a fulltime Doctoral student and have a start up 501 c3 non -Profit Corporation in Florida and am otherwise unemployed. After the oil spill hitting the beaches and all its effects,plus the economy we are in, it looks like I need to reinvent myself again. Despite my accomplishments, I dont edit well and dislike the grammar nazis lol that try to change my southern style of writing books, but evidently I can write academicaly when needed.
I received a Bachelor of Science Degree from Empire State College in Human Services with a specialty in Emergency Management Administration and Planning at age 50. I have a Masters of Administrative Science (MAS) from Fairleigh Dickinson University with 7 graduate certificates.
Certifications include: Alabama Emergency Managers Association (Certified Emergency Manager), National Association Of Safety Professionals (Certified Emergency Management Specialist), FEMA Professional Development Certificate Series awarded, and has Graduate Certificates in: Administrative Science, Emergency Management Administration, Global Security and Terrorism Studies Certificate, Displaced Persons Certificate, School Security & Safety Administration Certificate, Law and Public Safety Administration, and Non Profit Organization and Management.
