NOTICE: On April 11, 2018, I started a brand new blog titled “Reflections” on WordPress; however, I will still be publishing on this blog, too. Come and take a look! (Click this link to go to the new site.)
I come from the world of academia. For over twenty years I worked in higher education at colleges and universities, large and small, public and private, secular and Christian, and all except one was nonprofit. My area of expertise is in Student Affairs, and I held professional staff positions ranging from Academic Advisor to Coordinator to Director. I also worked with a variety of students (primarily adult students and graduate students) as well as staff, faculty, and administrators; and I also fulfilled numerous other responsibilities. Additional background information is available on my page titled, “A Brief Bio.”
Several years ago I lost a job a scant seven months after I started it after working in my profession for over twenty years. It was the only time in my career I worked in a “for profit” environment which was quite different from the years I worked at nonprofit colleges and universities. While undertaking a major job search, I started this blog in July 2010 as a way to journal my experiences with long term unemployment as it relates to my Christian faith. I was new to blogging back then, and I ended up deleting those early posts as they read more like a diary. However, three months later in July 2011, I fired my blog back up and this time it just took off. I started this resurrected blog with two blog posts written in March 2011 and I published them again in July 2011, so the official seven-year anniversary date of this blog in March 2011.
There are currently 560+ blog posts on my blog, and all of the blog posts contained in this blog are listed by title in a “Table of Contents” and linked for easy access at this link. The table of contents page is also listed at the top of this blog titled “Links To All Blog Posts.”
Thank you for visiting my blog!
