My name is Marcia Peterson, and I am really pleased to be your instructor for MG352. The following will give you a brief sketch of my background and interests.
I was born and raised in Flint, Michigan, but have lived in a variety of places including Ann Arbor MI., West Covina CA., Rosemead CA., Muncie IN., Port Huron MI., Brantford Ontario, Ishpeming MI, and back to Flint. My undergraduate degree is a BS in Design from University of Michigan, Ann Arbor with a concentration in Interior Design. My MBA was earned at Baker College Online/Flint. Currently, I am pursuing a Doctorate of Education through Northcentral University and hope to have my degree by late Fall, 2010.
I am married and have 3 adult children with 3 grandsons and a granddaughter. My son is a career pilot with both the Navy ( A6 and P3-Orion) and Homeland Security (previously U.S. Customs) stationed at NAS Corpus Christi, my middle daughter previously lived in Las Vegas and is a professional poker player. She recently moved to Corpus Christi, TX. My youngest daughter recently relocated to Grand Blanc, Michigan to seek better career opportunities and pursue her love for photography. I have five grandchildren.
After receiving my Bachelor's degree, I moved to California with 5 friends. I enjoyed the adventure, but missed the four seasons. I have NEVER regretted returning to Michigan!
My first career as a professional Space Planner/Commercial Interior Designer in LA was glamorous and challenging. I worked for a furniture manufacturer that competed with Steelcase, GF, and other steel furniture companies. We worked with hospitals, schools, libraries and office interiors. When I returned to Flint the same type of opportunity did not exist and so I ended up as a "designer" for a local design studio. I continued to work as a free-lance designer for a period of time following my marriage and family.
In addition to the design field, I have also worked as a substitute teacher, office manager for my husband's business, secretary, clerical supervisor, and stay-at-home mom. In 1989, I returned to work as a secretary for the Michigan Peer Review Organization in Flint. This triggered an interest in health care, and I was employed in the health care field for over ten years.
Although the past few years have not allowed much time to enjoy interests other than classes and computers, I SEEM to remember enjoying reading, playing bridge, gardening and genealogy. (I'm the sedentary type!) One of these days I plan on writing the novel that I have been thinking about for awhile. I like to travel, and have been able to visit Hawaii via a cruise on the Pride of America, the cruise ship owned by NCL. That was VERY nice! We have also enjoyed an amazing cruise to Alaska. (The cruise ships have Internet connections, so it was a “working” vacation!) We have a condo on North Padre Island/Corpus Christi, TX which we visit about three times a year. The rest of the year we rent it out.
