My work history reads like a vocation test. I have taught school in inner-city Detroit schools, worked as a mate/cook aboard large private yachts, managed a motel, been a hostess in several clubs and restaurants, worked for Riva Yachts in Palm Beach, sold advertising, had my own import store, been a 911 operator for the West Palm Beach P.D., was a field-coordinator for a national home building corporation, worked for a contractor building mansions on the ocean, (Whew!!) worked as a project manager for a sign co., was a receptionist at a large law firm, managed a furniture store, worked for another construction company and then a cabinet components place etc..etc…and am presently working for the city of West Palm Beach. (No, I did not include every job I’ve ever had, and I am not 92.)
