Introducing myself and my journal: Intelligence: Artificial and Otherwise

About Me:
I am finishing my terminal degree in Conflict Analysis and Resolution at Nova Southeastern University, and I have a bachelor's and master's degree in pschology. I have been on a unique path as I journey toward my doctoral destination which has bought me into many pursuits usually reserved for men. I spent 32 years as an owner/operator of a commercial printing corporation in the southeastern part of the U.S. as well as practicing martial arts for many years in sports where I found myself to be the only female participant. I was the only woman in my class when I received my pilot's license in the mid-1990s so I came to adopt the attitude that we are limited only by our own minds, and by what we believe we are capable of achieving. It has been a road that has given me insight into the many opportunities brought about through conflict including an understanding that it is only negative if we perceive it that way, and that not every conflict needs to be resolved. I am looking forward to becoming a productive member of this online community.

My Passions:
Music, nature, and Sphynx cats

My Challenges:
Finishing my dissertation by the spring of 2011

My Vision for the Future:
Teaching and practicing conflict resolution skills

My Areas of Expertise:
Flying, hypnosis, exotic animals
