After high school graduation in 1958, I established myself with Burroughs Corp., Plymouth, MI, and was promoted quickly from a File Clerk to the Secretary of the Engineering Dept., where I began to hone my skills in administrative assistance. Through the following 15-20 years, while raising a family, I intermittently worked as a Secretary to several Supervisors, mainly in the field of Engineering.
Upon becoming a single parent, and a move from Michigan to Colorado, I established myself with the El Paso County Clerk's office, where I worked at the front desk, filing legal documents, receiving payments such as child support, restitution payments, etc., as well as any clerical assistance to the Court Clerk and her Assistant. My duties also included filling in for the Judges' Secretaries due to their absence for anywhere from a week to a month duration.
After several years in these Secretarial positions, I made a transition into Inside/Outside Sales, mainly in the area of Advertising; and in the ensuing following years, I found myself quite proficient in not only the Sales but also in designing ads, composing ads to result in the highest responses, as well as eventually billing and invoicing. After years in an office atmosphere, I really enjoyed the travel and public contact as well as the freedom of working mainly independently.
