“I have a master’s degree – in science!”
(from an 80s radio show called Ask Dr. Science)
So let’s get this out of the way.
My master’s in science is in technical communication, 1992. Yes, it’s real. My thesis has a long fancy name. For it, I surveyed GIS readers of technical magazines. This was two years before I discovered the internet. The graduate program has another name now.
After that, I worked for a pharmaceutical textbook company in Washington State and then worked on a team at Intel formatting instructional materials for a fab. Then I went on my own, creating and maintaining coaching websites, as well as managing a group of minor ezines for a major coach.
Fast forward some years, and now I’m a writer and editor who enjoys writing and editing about psychological topics and life in general. I currently live in Colorado with my partner, Richard, and my 20-year-old cockatiel, Kiki.
To be clear, I’m not a therapist, counselor, or coach. I write from personal experience, and any scientific discussion is intended to be factual and kind.
If something I say is incorrect or unkind, I ask that you email me personally at email@example.com. Be very specific about what in my post is offensive or factually wrong. I want to understand your position and correct any false information. If a correction or apology is warranted, I will be honest and ethical. I’m serious about that.
