My Achievements

My Achievements:
Riding that huge wave of community development work like a pro surfer -- balancing several different projects and obligations, avoiding the sharks and rip-tides, forging new channels...with only the occasional wipe-out.

Work experience / Education

Work experience / Education:
Working as a community development specialist with University of Missouri Extension since 1996; current title (brace yourself) is County Engagement Specialist in Community Economic Development. After serving rural counties along the Mississippi River (South of St. Louis) for 19 years, I moved to small urban community of Columbia MO in 2014, still off-campus but now a mere eight miles away from MU. Received my bachelor's from Indiana University in 1993; Master of Social Work from Washington University, St. Louis, in 1996.
