I am an Older American - a pc term I just thought of :). I'm not elderly yet but mention this because I have lots of life experience and education and have diverse interests all of which I have spent years studying both formally and informally.

My formal education includes a bachelor's degree in communications/journalism and a master's in education. I like to mix it up and can't see doing one thing for my whole life. I guess I'd be labelled ADD if I grew up in this day and age. I think it's a good thing as I'm always curious and want to know more.

My informal education led to my extensive research on the topic of holistic health and natural alternatives to maintain good health and a healthy weight. I have attended many symposiums and conferences on the subject in addition to conducting lots of personal research.

At the present time, I am a Professional Organizer by day and a webmaster in my spare time. I really never thought I would use the term webmaster for myself, but since joining Wealthy Affiliate, I have 'mastered' enough aspects of running a website that I actually make money running them for other people. So now, I guess I can hold that title as well. Wonders never cease :)

I also love animals (I have two cats and a turtle), photography, scary stuff, gadgets, and of course, reading and writing. For exercise mostly swimming and walking.
