Approved subjects

I also served as Chief Financial Officer for a multimillion dollar company. I teach college business courses for several universities.

I have supervised employees for over 20 years, and in doing so worked hand in hand with Human Resources to improve their careers by utilizing continuing education, resume development skill improvement, cross training, and mentoring. Was training and development manager for Texas Instruments and Dell Computer.

I have been playing chess in tournaments for over 30 years, with many wins earned. I have taken chess strategy classes, and play on a regular basis.
