I am a 57 year old widow and mother of 4 grown children and 3 grandchildren. None of my family lives in the area, so I have a lot of time on my hands. I have a spinal disease called Adhesive Arachnoiditis that keeps me home a lot,so this site is exactly what I have been looking for. I can showcase my talents and make a little extra money to boot!

More About Me
I love to read, sew, hand work like crocheting. I also love the computer and enjoy my internet support groups and the friends I have made there. Writing is another passion I have. I am constantly making up stories and writing them down. There is a book in my somewhere!
I am a self-taught typist
so at present I am taking a course on the internet to learn to type without looking at the keys.
Work Experience:
For years i worked as a personal secretary to the president of a corporation. After that I ran the office for a body shop. I have also worked in the accounting department of an insurance company and when I married my second husband I ran his construction office. He framed houses and all of the guys who worked for him were sub-contractors. I handled the payroll for them, plus made up all of the 1099's at the end of the year. For several years I did the taxes for his business, but after a few years we turned that over to his sister who was a CPA.
I have a high school education so all of my work was on the job training. I started at the bottom and worked my way up
Organizations / Affilations:
In the early 70's I was affiliated with Crescent House, a home for Battered Women in New Orleans, La. I worked with the children there and loved it. Now I run several online support groups for Adhesive Arachnoiditis, a spinal disease that not many people know about. However, they should because any woman having an epidural for childbirth is in danger of contracting it, although you won't find a Dr who will admit it. It is a disease mostly caused by the medical profession, which is another reason that they not only don't talk about it but do not even teach it in medical schools.
