I am origanally from Maplewood NJ. At 13 our family moved to Poughkeepsie NY where my dad worked at IBM(EE) I met a man in NY who was coming to Ft Collins to get a Phd. NOT. So, he said bye, "at least I left you in a nice town." That was 35 years ago.I stayed in Fort Collins Colorado, got my BS from CSU. It's been difficult to find work over the years. I always have worked in what I like. Marketing, advertising, printing. I worked for Nabisco, Devry University, CSU college newspaper, local newspapers and the list goes on. I have a portfolio. I always made decent $$ for myself. Had many jobs and a few careers since 1979 when I arrived in Ft. Collins. Started working in dept. stores at 16. Retail sales. I was a steller Girl Scout peddling cookies, back in tmy day Thin mints,mmmm. Way back in NJ. I don't eat those any mo. That's when I got a social Securirty card. Now I'm taking it back.
