What is your favorite thing about volunteering with Kramden? I have learned some things and it gives me a feeling that I am giving something back. I have also met some very nice people.
Best Kramden Moment? Finally having an opening so I was able to sign up for a volunteering event – the first one was a mini Geek-a-Thon.
When you are not volunteering at Kramden, what do you do? I started a consulting business that keeps me fairly busy and gives me a chance to keep my hand in science. I taught myself R programming and next want to learn to work with Image J. I also try to get out and take advantage of the Capital Area Greenway as much as possible.
