I came to Baylor in 1983 to work for no longer than five years and now I am one month away from my 35th anniversary. It has been a fun ride and I would not change anything! I have had a wonderful career here and could not have asked to work for any better bosses, Dr. Bobby Alford, Dr. Jim Patrick, Dr. Michel Mawad and now finishing up with Dr. Eric Rohren, I have been a lucky girl. As I think back, I guess the one thing that comes to mind is when I joined Baylor we were still doing everything on paper, no computers to speak of. When I transferred from Psychiatry (Sleep Lab) to main administration, as assistant to Pat Camerino, I had a data base computer the size of a refrigerator that I entered all grants and proposals in to. Then came the Sperry Computers, I remember we could enter information into these computers, but not sure we could do anything else with them! We have come a long way! The first email system came out in 1980, but I don’t remember starting to use email on a daily basis until I joined the Department of Neuroscience in 1989! It was frightful!
