About Me

I work as an independent technical writer, editor, and owner of "The Soaring Scribe Productions" and as a Strategic Change Administrator for Sunflower Electric Power Corporation. My emphasis in writing includes strategic risk management, compliance, industrial technologies, electronic devices, computers and networks, and telecommunications technologies. My work includes books, manuals, articles, white papers, and blogs for national and international clients. In addition, I teach Political Science in the virtual environment. My work as a Strategic Change Administrator involves leading all change management and business analysis efforts for the corporation. During July 2014, I concluded 25 years of service to Fort Hays State University. Within that service to the institution, I worked in a variety of progressively complex upper administrative positions and led several large-scale projects. I also provided leadership for twelve different higher education accreditation teams through the Higher Learning Commission. My educational background includes a Master of Science Degree in Political Science with an emphasis on Public Administration, a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English, and an Associate of Science degree in Electronic Devices and Systems.
