PhD in organic chemistry teaching chemistry at a community college. I checked education which, I think, doesn't follow the directions. But, it has been said that trying to govern college faculty is like trying to herd cats (before the epic commercial that depicted same).

I'm a banker. I write loans, mortgages, etc, and also help people invest wisely. One of my main focuses is helping people get out of debt, or at least rearrange debt so their borrowing costs are reduced.
I also provide a listening ear. It's amazing the life stories people tell me when they sit across from me in my office.

I am a long time documentation specialist / technical writer for a variety of products in a variety of industries. Currently senior doc specialist at a large corporation that provides risk analysis data to aid employers, volunteer organizations, and the insurance company in hiring and underwriting decisions. I don't seem to do much real writing these days - mostly manage documentation projects and documentation libraries.
I tried to retire from the corporate world some years back - was running a Tech Pubs department at the time, and was burnt out from working 65-70 hours per week (plus commuting 3 hours each day). While "retired", I helped manage a training/breeding facility but got back into the corporate grind after a few years because I needed more disposable income (had elderly parents, plus two horses).
I also founded and managed for seven years The Oldenburg Horse magazine, an official publication of The Oldenburg Horse Breeders Society. And I have written a few articles here and there for various equine publications.

I read that as 'telepathy' and thought "Well, yeah, IT people *are* supposed to read your mind and diagnose the problem, aren't they?" <grins>

What a varied bunch! I love reading what everyone does.
I'm a Lecturer in French at a state university and also work as a linguist for language learning software developers, with the occasional translation or interpreter contracts on the side.
I used to make jewelry and horse hair pieces on the side, but really have no time now.
In the past I also was a riding instructor and therapeutic riding instructor.
