Obligatory First Post

I’ve begun this blog on my portfolio site because I found that I have been writing more blogs lately that are more relevant to my professional life than my personal life, and they just don’t fit in on my personal blog. The readers (if any) of my personal blog more than likely skip over those entries because they tend to be family who follow the website established by my husband and me. So in an effort to keep some separation, as well as put down some academic thoughts in a nice organized fashion, a blog is born.
