I am a 70-year-old great grandmother who has a life time interest in electronics, mechanics, robotics and programming.
I have a Bachelor’s in Computer Science and an Associate Degree in Electrical Engineering. My interest in electronics started as a child because my Father taught electronics at Great Lakes Naval Training Center in Illinois.
I am a member of the Seattle Robotics Society and a member of the Robothon Committee which puts on the annual robotics competition held at the Seattle Center.
R/C planes, boats and vehicles are also a big part of my life and I have raced fast electric boats for several years with the Puget Sound Fast Electrics Model Boat Club.
