SECONDARY WEBSITE PURPOSE
The secondary website purpose is to present information about my past professions as well as current activities. The reason I do this is to demonstrate the depth of knowledge I have gained in my areas of expertise to become a Resource Maven. In fact, my love of research and gaining information inspired me to go in this direction. As a professional and a retired person, I study my topics in depth and in great detail before I present them as facts.
