"I am a graduate from the University of California at Santa Barbara (1977) with a bachelors degree in chemistry and a bachelor's degree in pharmacology. I began working in the SDSU chem dept in November of 1977 as a student assistant. At the time, I was enrolled in the SDSU MBA program with a concentration in Management. I began full-time employment in September of 1978 as I was about to get married and thought that I should have a "real" job. My intention was for this to be a temporary position until I finished school. I fulfilled the second portion of that goal when I completed the course work towards the MBA degree shortly thereafter. The "temporary" aspect of my stay here has since taken on a more geological sense." (more)
