Update from 3-17-11: Just sending a line to say Hi, and see how things are going. I have been traveling a lot with work and working on my MSM (Masters of Science in Management) degree (Graduation December 2011), so my free time is limited. Iâ??m close to transitioning to a Regional job within my company to an RDO (Regional Director of Operations) position, which will afford me the opportunity to travel all over the country. Iâ??m really excited about the opportunities ahead. I love to travel. In fact, Iâ??m headed to Lima, Peru in a few weeks and will continue on to Machu Picchu! Iâ??ll forward some pictures when I get back. Itâ??s great to see the Musketeers doing so well in basketball this season, men and women."
