ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I spent 8 years in the USAF as a Bio-Environmental Engineer. It was wonderful to use my math skills in a different setting. I brought many of the math problems that I encountered to my students to solve. They loved being able to use their math is a "real life" setting.
