Professional Profile

I have a master’s in English from Winthrop University and am currently writing my dissertation for completion of my PhD in Organizational Management.

  1. Wow Kasie! I didn’t realize you were such an academic, another thing we have in common. I don’t have the extensive business background like you do, but I’ve had an academic & personal interest in organizational development, culture & climate & their effect on productivity. My main concerns have been w/nonprofit organizations. Before I had to leave my PhD, my work & research was in these areas & I was disappointed when I had realized I was not coming back to school. But, the interests are still there.
    My main writing experience is in research & some grant writing (which was not my favorite). I hope when I come back in the fall, that we can do our guest posting. I would like that very much!


    • Thanks, Monique, for visiting and commenting. I think if we follow our passions we will always find stories. Hard to imagine writing a business story, but certainly the business experience has provided me some opportunity to pursue art. I do hope to exchange guest posts soon.
