I have been a lesbian woman in the sciences all my life, currently I am a Technical Support Engineer for a scientific instruments manufacturer. I have been a field service engineer in high tech and truly enjoyed traveling to Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Singapore and other foreign lands such as Texas and Vermont and California. I was one of only two women in my graduating class at DeVry Institute of Technology in Phoenix, Arizona and the status quo has not changed much in 30 years. I write poetry and have at least one novel champing at the bit to be let loose. Although the internet allows humans to publish thoughts and ideas like never before on this earth, there is a dirth of truly thoughtful and meaningful things to read. I would love to play a small part in changing that. I would love for women to discover that they are the ones who invented tools and writing and many other wonderful things.
