Resume and…

Hello, All—

Please see other posts to see how the path has changed.  They say the road goes ever on.  See you there, sometime.

My name is Steve, and over the years I have chosen to complete three Master’s degrees. My experience covers four fields: bakery production and management; natural resources research and management; human performance/health and safety; and librarianship, mostly in medicine. My strengths are in customer service, streamlining processes, troubleshooting human systems, and getting things done on time and under budget. I enjoy the shared experience when folks set out to learn something, and I am allowed to assist.

I am now an unrepentant retiree, with time for my house and garden, travel, and assisting those who may need my help, be it moving households or just changing a light bulb. And cooking, don’t forget cooking.

If, for some strange reason, you would like to speak with me, please see below for a resume and contact information.

Wishing you all good things, mliswilltravel
